Emotional Well being

The impact of being part of Cheshire East Emotionally Healthy Schools intiative has been a very positive one.We have adopted a whole school approach to emotiional health and well being and we are creating a positive ethos in regard to mental health.

We held an Emotional Well-Being Week in October, which received very positive feedback from parents and proved such a success that we now hold an EWB Day each half-term. This has included a wide variety of experiences: from Change for Life activities to physical opportunities, such as Yoga, Boccia and New Age Kurling; from cooking and mindfulness-colouring to discussion relating to subjects like friendships and emotions. 

All members of staff have completed modules on the MindEd Learning Programme and are now aware of a tool in which they can increase their knowledge when faced with a child’s difficulties in all areas of mental health. They are being helped to identify changes in children’s behaviour that might indicate an issue with their mental health or well-being, therefore ensuring that as many children as possible are able to thrive.
