Children's Health & WellBEING
Sleep and Tiredness
Does your child have a regular set bedtime and routine?
In a recent survey of our children's wellbeing, a higher percentage than average for the county reported feeling tired when they come into school. Research shows lack of sleep has a serious affect on children's ability to learn. Please use the link above to find out more about how you can help your child get more sleep.
Children's mental health is a growing concern for the whole nation, as children today face different pressures, stresses and risks. If you are concerned about your child's emotional well being or mental health.
At school, we offer a range of provision for supporting all pupils with their wellbeing and mental health.
We are teaching all children how to be mindful through breathing exercises and meditation. This is in order to help the children to recognise their emotions and deal with them in a controlled and calm way.
Miss Wright and Mrs Haddington are spending some of their time working as pastoral support workers, helping pupils with social and emotional well being needs.
We are also working with Compass Buzz, a local authority service who provide staff training to help pupils deal with social, emotional and mental health concerns.
At lunchtime, we have an indoor calm club where pupils can choose to spend some quiet time. Adults are on hand to listen to any concerns, if they have any.
