Emotionally Healthy Schools
At Portway Infant's we value the importance of supporting children with their mental health.
Our intent is to support our children to feel safe and happy at school so they can achieve their potential and become happy global citizens and flourish in the wider community as they grow and learn.
We implement positive mental health and well-being through taught PSHE lessons, our behaviour policy which is based on positive relationships with pupil well-being at its core and by recruiting the year 2 children to become well-being ambassadors.
As a staff we constantly review the impact of the work we do with the children regarding their mental health and well-being. We strive to continue our professional development inline with new research and pedagogy.
Our Well-being ambassadors are busy working on a project to promote our 'buddy bench'. They are creating posters to show the children at school how we use our buddy bench. The well-being ambassador are going to create a guide for the teachers to show all of the classes so we can start using our buddy bench to help friends who might need it.
