PSHE and Wellbeing
PSHE subject intent:
Equip children with the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to manage their lives now and in the future.
As part of whole school approach, planned PSHE sessions develop the qualities and attributes that pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
As a school we are committed to supporting the mental wellbeing of all our stakeholders, please see the below links that were provided to parents by Mrs Leeman on a recent newsletter:
Mental Health Awareness: During this difficult time, it is particularly important that we recognise the additional stresses many of us are under and how over time this can affect our mental wellbeing. Looking after each other is important but so is seeking additional help and support when things get too much.
