Mental health and wellbeing are key facets in our mission to uphold the UNICEF Rights of the Child. We employ a range of strategies and systems to support children, families and staff, examples of which are below. If you have any questions about how we can help your child or family, with regard to mental health and wellbeing, please email the inclusion team: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Central to promoting strong mental health and wellbeing is our curriculum. We use the JIGSAW scheme (the link is below) to help guide children towards developing the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to be resilient, considerate and engaged learners.
To support all learners in developing emotional fluency, we employ Zones of Regulation approaches. Whether helping children to understand what to do if they are feeling angry, or supporting them to get into the right frame of mind for learning through our behaviour policies, we promote emotional literacy.
Brampton Primary School is fortunate enough to have a resident education mental health practitioner (EMHP). Our EMHP works directly with families to resolve challenges, such as anxiety, low-mood and self-confidence. They also run interventions like Brain Buddies (a link to the website is included below) and provide workshops for parents and children on resilience, online safety and transitions. For more information on the work of our EMHP, please speak to the inclusion and designated safeguarding lead, Mr Alex Wedgbury.
We recognise, as stated, the need to support the mental health and wellbeing of all stakeholders at BPS. Parents and carers can access links below to importance services in Newham that provide support for adults.
