Wellbeing

At Sevenoaks Primary School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils. Supporting and promoting wellbeing, building resilience and good mental health will improve outcomes for our children. With such a huge amount of time spent in the classroom, schools provide an ideal environment for promoting good emotional wellbeing and identifying early behaviour changes and signs of mental distress. We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. The social and emotional skills, knowledge and behaviours that young people learn in the classroom can help them to build resilience and set the pattern for how they will manage their mental health throughout their lives.

We have a student Wellbeing Ambassador in every class (to find out more please see our Student Wellbeing Ambassadors page), include Wellbeing in our school-wide PSHE curriculum and in addition offer a number of targeted interventions throughout the school such as Relax kids, Zones of Regulation.

Lead staff member: Mrs A Moore: Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Lead : Early Years / KS1 Teacher, accredited Mental Health First Aider, ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) trained, trained Paws b mindfulness teacher.
Supported by Well-being Team and team of accredited Mental Health First Aider’s across the school.
