‘At St Margaret Mary’s Roman Catholic Junior School, we are fully committed to promoting positive Mental Health and Wellbeing across our whole school community as we believe that by doing so, we will develop happy, well rounded pupils who are emotionally resilient to deal with all that life throws at them. Within school we have a robust Pastoral system to ensure that any pupils presenting as vulnerable are allocated an adult ‘WellBeing Champion’. Pupils are further supported through opportunities to participate in regular workshops and through strategies such as Mindfulness and WellBeing Wednesday. The Senior Leadership Team ensure that staff are well supported through bespoke Continual Professional Development and through the opportunity to contribute to forums at which they can vocalise ways in which we can further improve their work life balance and can make positive improvements to our overall provision. Likewise parents are invited to have an active voice in the school through regular coffee mornings, forums and regular opportunities to participate in surveys. By taking this joined up approach, we are confident that our school is a happy and healthy place for the community to thrive.’ Mrs R Wilkinson
Feelings of wellbeing are fundamental to the overall health of an individual, enabling them to successfully overcome difficulties and achieve what they want out of life. ... A child's wellbeing will be affected by the wellbeing of their parents so it is essential that parents take time for themselves in this respect.
With this in mind as a school we have successfully achieved The National Well-Being Award in June 2020 . Working with all members of our school community we are striving to ensure we do our best to promote the mental health and well-being of ALL.
