At Bridgewater Primary School, we strive to ensure that we educate our children to recognise that their mental health is just as important as their physical health. One of the key aspects in everything we do in school is focus on Wellbeing. As a school, we recognise that all children need to be happy, healthy and develop the skills to cope with challenges they may encounter in order to access their learning.

Through our curriculum, we teach resilience, confidence, positive self-esteem and coping mechanisms to all children, as well as a focus aspect within our PHSE curriculum. Through Miss Lomax’s weekly ‘Positive Post’ letters, we discuss a positive affirmation and develop an understanding of emotions, self-control, developing good relationships and keeping healthy in both mind and body.

At our school, we promote a mentally healthy environment through:

  • Promoting our school values and encouraging a sense of belonging.
  • Promoting pupil voice and opportunities to participate in decision-making.
  • Celebrating academic and non-academic achievements in order to promote self-esteem.
  • Providing opportunities to develop a sense of worth through taking responsibility for themselves and others.
  • Providing opportunities to reflect.
  • Access to appropriate support that meets their needs where required.
  • Helping children to understand their emotions and feelings better and to feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries.
  • Helping children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks.
