Children's Mental Health Week runs from 1st - 7th February 2021. We will complete activities in school with our pupils discussing how we think and feel, suggesting tips and sharing ideas on looking after our mental health. You can find some useful information and activities on the link below to do at home, as well and a message from The Duchess of Cambridge.

Wellbeing

At St Paul's Walden Primary School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils, staff and community. We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play.  

 At our school we:

  • help children to understand their emotions and feelings better                             
  • help children feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries                                                       
  • help children socially to form and maintain relationships
  • promote self esteem and ensure children know that they count
  • encourage children to be confident and ‘dare to be different’
  • help children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks 

Parents and carers.

Parents or carers should approach their child/children’s class teacher if they have any mental health concerns. This will be cascaded to the Mental Health Leader for assessment. In addition to offering support within school, we may also discuss with you additional support mechanisms available to you from the following agencies:

 

The links and information in this page will provide support for you, your child and people in the wider community.

What are the 5 Ways to Wellbeing?

This video was designed by Rochdale council.
We asked Rochdale teenagers to work with animation company Kilogramme and make a short film about what the 5 Ways to Wellbeing mean to them, using their lives and their ideas. This is the result.
