Mental Health and Wellbeing
‘Mental health is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make contribution to her or his own community.’ World Health Organisation, 2014.
At Round Hill Primary School, we are committed to supporting the health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff to ensure that the school is a community where everyone feels they can thrive. Positive mental wellbeing is essential if children and young people are to flourish and lead fulfilling lives.
As part of our curriculum, Round Hill Primary School explores activities, discussions and discrete lessons that encourage pupils and staff to consider their own mental health and wellbeing and how we can all look after ourselves.
At Round Hill we:
* help children understand their emotions and feelings better
* help children feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries
* help children socially to form and maintain relationships
* promote self-esteem and ensure children know that they matter
* encourage children to be confident
* help children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks
