At Sutton Green Primary School we believe that children's wellbeing is paramount. Over the course of their education, children spend over 7,800 hours at school. With such a huge amount of time spent in the classroom, schools provide an ideal environment for promoting good emotional wellbeing and identifying early behaviour changes and signs of mental distress. The social and emotional skills, knowledge and behaviours that young people learn in the classroom can help them to build resilience and set the pattern for how they will manage their mental health throughout their lives.
Mrs S Carter is our designated Mental Health First Aider in school and has accessed training to enable her to support staff and pupils.
Mrs C Payne has attending two Emotional Wellbeing workshops and has trained as a Mental Health First Aider.
Miss Dunning has attended Resilience training and Local Authority Anxiety and Depression Training.
As a school we use the programme My Happy Mind to create a positive mental wellbeing culture, in which children build resilience, self-esteem and character.
