At Wembley Primary School we are committed to embedding a culture which values the happiness and emotional welfare of all pupils. We strive to promote wellbeing as a part of day-to-day school life, providing opportunities to model, teach and discuss feelings and emotions.
What is ‘good’ emotional health and wellbeing in our school?
• To be resilient, confident, adaptable and collaborative
• The ability to recognise, acknowledge and manage their feelings
• The ability to develop caring and concerns for others
• The ability to develop meaningful, positive and long-lasting relationships
• The ability to take responsibility for themselves and make practical decisions
• The knowledge of how to promote their own wellbeing
• It includes everyone within our school
Some whole school approaches to promote positive mental health and wellbeing
• Use of the language of ‘Growth Mindset’, where resilience and perseverance is celebrated
• Use of outside learning such as the School Nature Garden
• Broad and enriched curriculum including school trips, after school clubs
This academic year, we have been implementing ‘Wembley Ways to Wellbeing’ and ‘Zones of Regulation’ where pupils will become familiar with recognising; talking about and regulating their feelings and aspects that support their wellbeing and mental health.
