Mental Health and Wellbeing

 
 

Mental Health and Wellbeing – Our Approach at D.P.S.

At Davyhulme Primary School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils, their families and our staff. We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play.

At our school we aim to: 

  • help children to 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 count
  • encourage children to be confident and ‘dare to be different’
  • help children to be persistent even when faced with challenges
  • help children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks
  • help children to develop a‘Growth Mindset’.

 We offer different levels of support:

  • Universal Support– To meet the needs of all our pupils through our overall ethos and our wider curriculum. For instance developing resilience for all.
  • Additional support– For those who may have short term needs and those who may have been made vulnerable by life experiences such as bereavement.
  • Targeted support– For pupils who need more differentiated support and resources or specific targeted interventions such as wellbeing groups, learning mentor sessions or referral to wider professionals.
