Mental Health and Well Being
At Mapplewells Primary and Nursery School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and well-being of our pupils and staff.
We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play.
At Mapplewells we:
promote self esteem and ensure children know that they are valued individuals
encourage children to be confident and ‘push their limits’
help children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks
help children to understand their emotions and feelings better
help children feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries
promote the importance of being kind and working together
help children socially to form and maintain relationships and focus on teamwork to build community links.
