Now more than ever, it is crucial to make sure we are looking after the emotional health and wellbeing of staff and pupils. All members of staff have completed Mental Health First Aid training.
As well as physical health, children need to know how to look after their mental health and deal with their emotions. We use PSHE Association planning for discrete lessons, and revisit and reinforce the concepts and strategies learned through other areas of the curriculum. In EYFS and KS1 children start learning how to self regulate (deal with their emotions) and this is continued in KS2 where the children use The Zones of Regulation.
