At Limes Farm Infant School and Nursery, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils and 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 fundamental and that we all have a role to play.
At our school we:
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 Growth Mindset and resilience for all.
Additional support- For those who may have short term needs and those who may have been made vulnerable by life experiences.
Targeted support- For pupils who need more differentiated support and resources or specific targeted interventions such as wellbeing groups or personal mentors.
At Limes Farm Infant School and Nursery, we believe that PSHE is important to help our pupils grow and develop into caring, confident, healthy, independent, responsible, successful and sociable individuals.
We are a welcoming school and value working with parents and carers. Our environment is safe and we aim to provide a broad and creative curriculum to inspire our pupils to express themselves and be the best they can possibly be. We encourage a growth mindset, Philosophy for Children opportunities, awe and wonder opportunities, an awareness of right and wrong and we celebrate differences and achievements.
We have celebration assemblies, PSHE class assemblies, daily wellbeing and mindfulness activities and Wellbeing Wednesday whole school assembly.
We nurture emotional and mental health and are working towards achieving the Wellbeing Award for Schools (WAS) in partnership with the National Children's Bureau (NCB).
We value inclusion and believe everyone has the right to be treated fairly and with respect. Our new scheme of work Jigsaw incorporates the new SRE standards.
At our school we seek to inspire in children the joy in accepting who they are as a whole, a love of learning and the strive to make a positive contribution to their community.
