Mental Health and Wellbeing

Taking Care of Ourselves and Each Other

Mental Health and Wellbeing at Rainbow Primary School

At Rainbow Primary School, we believe that a positive mind-set and good physical health and wellbeing are vital for the growth of both staff and pupils. Due to the recent pandemic, we are aware that there is a much greater need to raise the awareness of mental health and wellbeing to further support the Rainbow Primary School community.

My name is Miss Naz and I am the Mental Health and Wellbeing lead at Rainbow Primary School.

Rainbow Primary School is an inclusive setting where positive mental health and wellbeing is firmly embedded in all aspects of the school ethos by:

  • Promoting positive mental and emotional wellbeing by providing high quality training to staff and pupils.
  • Creating opportunities to explore mental health and wellbeing issues within the curriculum in addition to 30-minute wellbeing sessions on Friday afternoon.
  • Creating a shared understanding of all aspects of mental health.
  • Enabling those with mental health related issues to self-disclose and seek support in a safe confidential manner.
  • Offering guidance and strategies, along with the support of Mental Health First Aiders, to support pupils and staff to be mentally healthy.
  • Creating a culture to support and maintain positive mental health and wellbeing.
  • Providing mental health and wellbeing support for parents, carers and families who are a part of the Rainbow Primary School community.
