Wellbeing at Orchard
Wellbeing At Orchard
Wellbeing is very important to us at Orchard. At our school, we aim to promote positive mental health and well-being for our whole school community; pupils, staff, parents and carers, and recognise how important mental health and emotional well-being is to our lives in just the same way as physical health. We promote children’s well being through a variety of ways, from the Golden Mile and PSHE lessons to more specialised strategies.
As a school we have links with the Mental Health Support Team. The Mental Health Support Team work with individual children, small groups of children and with parents/carers. The Mental Health Support Team are here to support children who need early intervention or are experiencing low level concerns. If you have seen a difference with your child, please come into school and have a chat with Mrs Johns or Mrs Wright.
The Mental Health Support Team provide a range of parent workshops. They also support staff in school and provide training. Please click on the link below for more information about the Mental Health Support Team.
Mrs Burton is our Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA). She works with children in a variety of ways to support their wellbeing. Please click on the link below for more information.
