Welcome to the wellbeing page for St. Mary’s Infant School. It is important to know that everyone has mental health and wellbeing, it’s our feelings, our thinking, our emotions and our mood, and it is as important as our physical health.
‘Mental health is a state of wellbeing in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.’ (World Health Organization)
At St. Mary’s, we aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our staff and children. We use both universal, whole school approaches and specialised, targeted approaches aimed at vulnerable children. We recognise that student’s mental health is a crucial factor in their overall wellbeing and can affect their learning and achievement. The Department for Education (DFE) reinforces this with the statement: ‘in order to help their children succeed, schools have a role to play in supporting them to be resilient and mentally healthy.
