The Grange Primary School

Mental Health and Wellbeing

Introduction

We adopt a whole school approach to positive mental health; in that it is the shared responsibility of all individuals in a school community to play their part in the positive life of the school. The Grange Primary School believes that there are certain factors that help to support positive mental health:

  • Clear expectations of behaviour and reasonable adjustments for those behaviours that might be the result of emotional difficulties or adverse experiences.
  • Staff understand that behaviour is a form of communication.
  • A calm, safe and predictable environment.
  • Wellbeing is promoted implicitly through lived values and attitudes.
  • Wellbeing is promoted explicitly through curriculum.
  • Mental ill health is not stigmatised.
  • The language of mental health is not stigmatised.
  • Clear pathways of identification and referral for children, both internally and to specialist services.
  • Families, outside agencies and the wider community are proactively engaged in the life of the school.

We have two dedicated Mental Health Champions that are there to offer support if required. If you have any concerns about you or your child’s mental wellbeing then please get in contact with the school to seek support.
