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