Wellbeing

At St George’s we believe that all children and staff should feel secure, valued and happy at school. We strive to ensure that children are supported in all aspects of emotional health and wellbeing and they know who they can talk to if they are feeling sad or worried.

 

 

 

 

 

We are proud to announce that we have been awarded the Wellbeing Award for Schools. This award reflects the hard work that staff have put in to helping develop a school environment where everyone’s emotional health and wellbeing is valued and supported. Here is a copy of our report that we are extremely proud of: Wellbeing Award Report

 

 

Our Children and Family Support Manager, Mrs Johnson-Taylor, has vast experience and is able to give support and advice on a wide range of wellbeing matters. Parents can email her directly at ehwbstgeorges@taw.org.uk or telephone school to book an appointment. Alternatively, parents can always talk to Class Teachers or Senior Leaders if they prefer.

How are you feeling?

Some children struggle to understand how they are feeling. By talking about different emotions and what they mean with a child, you can often help them to feel better. Sometimes, poor behaviour can often be linked to a child not understanding how they are feeling and what they can do about it. Here is a link to an emotions chart which children and parents can use when they are talking about feelings. This could be put on the fridge or in their bedroom so they can see it and use it when talking about how they are feeling that day or when something has happened.

This week we have been celebrating Mental Health Awareness Week in school. This year’s theme was all about enjoying nature.

The children in year two went outside to do some cloud spotting and came up with some fantastic stories using their imagination!
