Promoting positive emotional health and wellbeing in children
The Emotional Health and Wellbeing of pupils underpins the entire school experience. Every child has emotional needs and the school has a responsibility to provide a nurturing and supportive environment in which learners can develop confidence and emotional resilience to achieve their full potential and therefore enhance their capacity to learn. Also, there will be specific vulnerable groups of children and young people who will require additional support.
Schools have a statutory responsibility with promoting pupil wellbeing and safeguarding of children and young people.
Mental Health First Aid Courses
The Emotional Health and Resilience charter is a way for schools to show their commitment to support the mental health and emotional wellbeing and resilience of their pupils. Once the school has signed the charter they complete an audit to record their strengths and identify areas for development. An action plan is then created and support can be requested from the Emotional Health and Wellbeing Consultants and partner services.
