Wellbeing at Woodmansterne
At Woodmansterne Primary School, we aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our whole school community (children, staff, parents and carers), and recognise how important mental health and emotional well being is to our lives in just the same way as physical health. We recognise that children’s mental health is a crucial factor in their overall well being and can affect their learning and achievement.
Our role in school is to ensure that children are able to manage times of change and stress, and that they are supported to reach their potential or access help when they need it. We also have a role to ensure that children learn about what they can do to maintain positive mental health, what affects their mental health, how they can help reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues, and where they can go if they need help and support. As a school all the work we do to promote positive mental health both promotes and supports our school values – Resilience, Responsibility, Reflection and Respect.
Within school we follow the 'Zones of Regulation' curriculum which provides children with the skills needed to understand their emotions and regulate their actions; which in turn leads to increased control and problem-solving abilities.

Our Well being Offer at Woodmansterne
We offer a range of wellbeing resources, initiatives or lessons to all of the children in our school and these are accessible in the classroom or through whole school activities. For some children, a more targeted approach may be required and this can vary from being signposted to a particular club or receiving a programme of 1:1 support.
If you are concerned about your child’s well being then please speak to your child’s class teacher first. Please click below for further support and advice on how to support your child’s well being at home.
