Welcome to Leigh Mental Health and Wellbeing area.
As an academy we want to support the Mental Health and Wellbeing of our whole school community - pupils, parents/carers and staff. Please see below for our Mental Health and Wellbeing Policy and our latest newsletter for parents with links to support for mental health and wellbeing.
Children's Mental Health Week 2023
The theme this year has been 'Let's Connect'. In school we have been thinking about how we can make positive connections with other people (such as family, friends and people in our community) and what to do if we are finding it difficult to connect with others. We have also been learning about the Incredible 5 Point Scale as a way to understand our feelings.
If you would like a copy of one of the 5 Point Scales to use at home, please ask your teacher or click on the links below
Wellbeing and mental health support for children at Leigh
All children learn about their wellbeing and mental health at Leigh through stories, assemblies, PSHE lessons and our Christian ethos.
The photos below show the different ways that all children can access support when they need it.
- Good to Talk boxes
- Calm corners in every class
- Support from Mrs Goddard, our learning mentor
- Boomerang session for KS2
- PSHE lessons
- Access to nurture at break and lunchtimes
- Regular workshops provided by the Mental Health in Schools Team.
The SEMH (Social, Emotional and Mental Health) provision document shows in more detail what further support may be offered to children if greater needs arise.
