At Christ the Saviour, we promote the positive mental health and wellbeing of every member of our school community. We recognise that positive mental health is essential for effective learning and attainment.
Positive wellbeing is promoted through the curriculum and other school activities. Through a carefully planned approach to PSHE, our pupils acquire the knowledge and develop the skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and become resilient, informed and responsible citizens.
Curricular and Extra-curricular Support
We support the mental health and wellbeing of all pupils through:
building strong relationships centered around mutual respect
a school ethos which empowers tolerance and respect
clear rules, routines, expectations and consequences
enhanced provision e.g. our sensory room and nurture room
targeted pastoral and learning support
opportunities for intellectual, physical and expressive development in the classroom
circle time, social stories and worry boxes
trained mental health first aiders
Below you will find some Parent Handouts created by our drama therapist. We hope you will find them helpful in supporting the emotional wellbeing of your child. If you are concerned about your child’s mental wellbeing, please contact the class teacher or head of year.
