Wellbeing In School
It is critical that wellbeing in school is good to enable all members of the school community to flourish including children, parents and staff.
For the purpose of this page we have split the support for children into universal support that all children will benefit from and targeted support that some children may need at some time.
If you think your child would benefit from any of the targeted support below please contact your child's teacher.
Wellbeing For All Children (Universal Support)
Zones of Regulation
Zones of Regulation is a strategy used with all children. We teach children about how they may feel in different parts of the day and what they can do if they are feeling in a certain way. Some parents find it useful to talk about the Zones of Regulation at home. If you would like a copy of the ZOR poster to use at home click here.
Personal, Social and Heath Education
We teach children PSHE through the Jigsaw scheme. The areas we cover in PSHE include:
- Being Me
- Celebrating Differences
- Dreams and Goals
- Healthy Me
- Changing Me
We use the Jigsaw resources to teach children high quality PSHE which will support their wellbeing.

Wellbeing For Some Children (Targeted Support)
Emotional Literacy Support Assistants (ELSA)
Several members of staff have been trained as Emotional Literacy Support Assistants. Typically children who need some emotional support will be referred to our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator or Parent Support Advisor who will review the referral and arrange a block of emotional support. The areas covered in ELSA include:
- Anxiety and Worries
- Social Skills
- Bereavement and Loss
- Friendship Skills
- Managing Strong Feelings

We know that we have a number of children who have a caring responsibility at home. Our Young Carer lead, Mrs Danielle Callis, has oversight of our children who are young carers and arranges the following support.
- Information Packs for Parents
- Signposting to external support
- Regular Check Ins with our Young Carers if the child and parent feels this may be helpful
- Promoting Young Carers
