Emotional Wellbeing & Mental Health
It is widely recognised that a child’s emotional health and wellbeing influences their cognitive development and learning, as well as their physical and social health and their mental wellbeing in adulthood. We recognise that, in order to help our pupils succeed we have a role to play in supporting them to build resilience and manage everyday stressors in order to be mentally healthy.
Children and young people should feel that they belong at school; that they are supported and can develop trusting relationships with school staff. The child should stay at the centre of every conversation.
At Montacute we understand that every child and young person is different and may cope with challenging situations differently.
We ensure that all pupils know who to talk to if they need support.
