Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing

At St Mary Magdalene we take mental health and emotional wellbeing seriously. We are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff. We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play.

At St Mary Magdalene we:

  • help children to understand their emotions and feelings better
  • help children feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries
  • help children socially to form and maintain relationships
  • promote self-esteem and ensure children know that they count
  • encourage children to be confident and ‘dare to be different’
  • help children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks

We all have times when we have low mental wellbeing, where we feel stressed, upset or find it difficult to cope.

There are some common life events that may affect you or your child's mental wellbeing:

  • Loss or bereavement
  • Loneliness
  • Relationship problems
  • Issues at school
  • Worries about money

Everyone deserves to feel good and there are steps you or your child can take to maintain and improve your Mental Wellbeing:

  • Build positive relationships
  • Take time for yourself
  • Look after your mental health
  • Look after your physical health

What can your child can do in school to gain mental wellbeing?

  • Be open and talk about your feelings with your friends
  • Associate yourself with positive people
  • Join an afterschool club
  • Speak to a member of staff
  • Tell the Safeguarding and Wellbeing Team (Senior Leadership Team)
  • Get physically active (a healthy body and mind are closely linked)
