We believe that it is vital that teaching mental health and wellbeing is not simply a ‘one off’ lesson or themed week, rather it is embedded into the curriculum providing children with opportunities to explore mental health and wellbeing within their topics. This will develop a greater understanding of mental health and wellbeing and will allow children to explore this in a variety of settings through their topics. This learning journey begins from Reception and progressively continues to Year 6.
On Friday afternoon, every class has wellbeing activities that link to their class needs. These needs are identified from surveys that children complete at the beginning of the term.
In Key Stage 1, children complete a survey, which measures positivity, motivation and resilience.
In Key Stage 2, pupils complete a more detailed online survey, which is via Rising Stars, which measures positivity, self-efficacy, motivation, resilience and persistence.
The document below explains what each of these strands mean in detail and their importance in developing a child’s mental health and wellbeing.
