Mental Health and Wellbeing
At St Mary and St Giles C of E School, we are committed to supporting the positive mental health and wellbeing of our whole community of children, staff, parents and carers.
Our ethos is supportive, caring and respectful. We understand how important positive mental health and wellbeing is to our lives. We recognise that children’s mental health is a vital factor in their overall wellbeing and how it can affect their learning and achievements. Our School encourages children to be open and we support all children to have their voice heard.
The Department for Education (DfE) recognises that “in order to help their children succeed, schools have a role to play in supporting them to be resilient and mentally healthy”. St Mary and St Giles C of E School is a place for children to experience a nurturing and supportive environment. We support the children to develop their self-esteem and build resilience. We understand all children and their families go through ups and downs, and some face significant life events.
Our culture of nurturing children and building resilience to mental health problems means our school is a safe place where:
- Every child feels valued;
- Every child has a sense of belonging;
- Every child feels able to talk openly with trusted members of staff about their problems;
- Positive mental health is promoted;
- Bullying is not tolerated.
At St Mary and St Giles C of E School, positive mental health is everybody’s responsibility.
