Wellbeing at St Francis
At St Francis, the mental health and wellbeing of our pupils, families and staff is of great importance to us. Through our curriculum we offer a wide range of opportunities for children to develop self-help skills so that they grow to be able to independently manage their wellbeing. By working together, we hope to encourage children, their families and our entire school community to be their own mental health and wellbeing engineers, building in opportunities to support one another.
This year we have trained 50 Year 5 and 6 Wellbeing Ambassadors using Eikon, a local charity. They will be helping on both the KS1 and KS2 playground at playtimes, greeting children as ‘Morning greeters’ and meeting regularly to discuss ideas and run wellbeing initiatives. Please look out for the children in their * sashes.
