At Denbigh Primary School emotional health and wellbeing is taught through the SEAL programme which is incorporated into our PSHE planning.
Teaching and learning throughout the curriculum supports pupil autonomy through creating greater pupil choice and focusing on the mastering of learning tasks. This plays a role in enhancing behaviour and academic achievement. We develop the skills needed for pupils to work with each other in groups and to understand the opinions of others. Emotional health, well-being and resilience are at the core of teaching and learning.
Specialist staff and external services are used to support the needs of the whole school as well as individual pupils. Our learning mentor runs interventions to help pupils increase confidence, enhance their learning, improve their relationships with peers, resolve conflicts and feel happier at school.
A member of staff has been trained to deliver mindfulness to help pupils concentrate, as well as deal with the pressures of 21st century life.
As we continue to promote the emotional wellbeing of the children at Denbigh, we understand that parents may often need guidance on how to support their children with this. Here is link to a very useful website that offers tips on how to support your child’s mental health.
Emotional support is being provided within the school but if you would like to refer your child please speak to Amy Keenan (Wellbeing Co-ordinator).
