Healthy Mind Champions
At All Saints, the wellbeing of our pupils is at the heart of all that we do.
Over the past year we have trained a number of staff to develop their expertise and understanding of children’s mental health and wellbeing.
Mrs Bolton, Mrs Bigg and Mrs Guy have all gained accreditation for being Youth Mental Health First Aiders.
Mrs Bigg is also a designated Emotional Learning Support Assistant (ELSA).
All three members of staff have the designated role of being our ‘Healthy Mind Champions’ and have a key role in working with children who may experience anxiety, issues with self-esteem and resilience and who may need adult support to help them deal with wellbeing issues on an ongoing basis or from time to time.
At present, children are identified by staff and support is put in place in consultation with parents. In addition to this work, we also offer 1:1 and small group nurture sessions with Mrs Strawson.
If you feel that your child is experiencing anxiety or you are concerned with their emotional wellbeing, then please do get in touch and we can look at support that we are able to put into place, either through nurture group sessions or from one of our Healthy Mind Champions.
