Pupil Wellbeing

 At St John’s Catholic Primary School, we value pupil's physical and mental wellbeing and understand the link betwween the two.  We recognise that every child is unique, and may need different support with wellbeing at various points during their time at our school.  

Pupil wellbeing is supported through our Gospel values and ethos as well as through the curriculum provided to all children.

  • In PSHE lessons children learn ways in which they can own and improve their own physical and mental health and strategies to manage their own wellbeing.
  • PE lessons provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. 
  • During collective worship children explore their faith and spend time in community and reflection together.

 In addtion to the curriculum delivered to all children, some children may also have support through:

  • 1:1 or small group Thrive sessions. Click here for more information about Thrive.
  • Emotional Literacy Support, with our Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (Click here for more about ELSA)
  • We also have support available for children and families through the Mentally Healthy Schools project. BANES Mental Health Support Team.  They are able to offer series of group, 1:1 or parent and child sessions based around anxiety, promoting positive wellbeing and understanding and managing behaviour.   For more details on this, please view the information leaflet, and get in touch with Mrs Geeson to discuss a referral into this service. 

In addtion to the support offered at schoool, parents can access support from external agencies:
