Health and Well-being
We are currently working really hard at Woden Primary School to achieve the Well-being Award for Schools. It is widely recognised that a child’s emotional health and well-being influences their cognitive development and learning, as well as their physical and social health and their well-being in adulthood.
The Department for Education recognises that in order to help pupils succeed, schools have a role to play in supporting them to be resilient and mentally healthy.
In this section you will find a few useful supporting documents as well as links to websites to help as a guide for the importance of keeping our children’s minds healthy.
- To ensure that through the promotion of positive emotional health and wellbeing, children are helped to understand and express their feelings, build their confidence and emotional resilience and therefore their capacity to learn.
- To increase the awareness and understanding and reduce stigma amongst children, staff and parents/carers of issues involving the emotional health and wellbeing of young people and to provide support at an early stage to anyone who is or appears to be suffering from mental health issues.
