Knowledge and skills to improve mental health are taught explicitly through our PSHE curriculum, It is also embedded in RE, Science, PE and other areas.
We use the language of mental health frequently to break down stigma and educate children in understanding mental health without fear.
Our PHSE curriculum is progressive and age appropriate so that children can build up their knowledge and understanding. We encourage children to understand how mindfulness supports positive mental health and we practice techniques. Our assembly programme also supports children’s mental health, covering themes such as mindfulness, resilience, kindness, celebrating difference, empathy and staying safe.
