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.


We held an Emotional Wellbeing event for both keystages  in the final half term, which the children and staff thoroughly enjoyed. It was lovely to watch the children working in teams with children from other year groups. They all encouraged each other and showed great team spirit.

We will continue to hold Emotional Wellbeing Days at the end of each half term in the next academic year, covering many different topics from Science, Art, Outdoor Activities, Music and many more. The emotional wellbeing days have proved a huge success and below are a small selection of photographs taken at the last event.
