When children and young people have good levels of wellbeing it helps them to:
learn and explore the world
feel, express and manage positive and negative emotions
form and maintain good relationships with others
cope with, and manage, change, setbacks and uncertainty
develop and thrive.
When children and young people look after their mental health and develop their coping skills it can help them to boost their resilience, self-esteem and confidence. It can also help them learn to manage their emotions, feel calm, and engage positively with their education – which can, in turn, improve their academic attainment.
At our schools we believe in nurturing the WHOLE child- good mental health & self esteem go hand in hand with better academic achievement and our aim is to help ALL our children to achieve their potential.
