Wellbeing – is a golden thread at the heart of our Curriculum

Wellbeing is a golden strand at the heart of our shine curriculum, looking after the health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff is incredibly important to us. We link our wellbeing closely with our PSHE and keeping children safe and empowering children to understand how to look after themselves and keep themselves safe. Our policy and overview show how we teach PSHE across the curriculum and annually specifically focus on areas such as: ESafety, antibullying, NSPCC stay safe speak out and NSPCC PANTS rule. We also teach our children mindfulness, yoga, zumba, MISP (massage in schools programme) and give them regular emotional workshops to help them find strategies to be calm and manage living in a busy and sometimes stressful world. We always work to build self-esteem and a strong respectful pupil voice. We have Buddies across the school to train and develop caring and responsible partnerships and relationships between older and younger children. We work hard and are committed to supporting our staff with wellbeing to ensure that they feel supported, cared for and are able to manage their busy lives so that they can balance work and home life. We are currently working towards achieving the ‘Happiness award’. Mrs Saville & Mrs Crowley have had their training in this and working on the award.
