Wellbeing Champions for Limes Farm Infant School and Nursery
Our Wellbeing Champions at Limes Farm Infant School and Nursery are children and adults who are positive role models for others. Their role includes supporting pupil wellbeing through proactively empowering children to positively interact, to ensure no bullying occurs, and to identify children who may need support.
The Wellbeing Champions are supported and coached by the Wellbeing Leaders Miss Taylor who has taken part in the Mental Health Lead Training and Mrs Tutty-Lyons. Previously called Ambassadors, the role is to enable them to independently run playtime activities, promote wellbeing initiatives and health promotion across school.
All adults at Limes Farm Infant School and Nursery champion wellbeing as it is part of our school vision. However our specific Champions are Mrs Jonker PHSE Lead and Mrs Holder our LSA and Learning mentor, who also runs the Parent Nurture Programme.
Our Aim is to provide the Wellbeing Champions with training. This will explore ways to manage emotions as well as discussing how to support others without taking on the role of the adult. We will be doing this through watching and commenting on different role play scenarios, looking at different situations that happen in the playground, discussion how to resolve issues and talking about what support and extra activities we could do with the whole school to promote positive wellbeing and mindfulness.
