Mackie Hill Junior and Infant School



Mental Health and Wellbeing 

Putting our children at the heart of our curriculum

 

Mackie Hill Primary School is proud to have been awarded ‘Health and Well-being Charter Award’ for our commitment and whole school approach to wellbeing in school.

 At our school 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

 

 

 

Feelings of well-being are fundamental to the overall health of an individual, enabling them to successfully overcome difficulties. A child’s well-being will be affected by the well-being of their parents so it is essential that parents take time for themselves in this respect.

Below are lots of different activities and links which I hope will help you to help your child/children and you to manage well-being during this difficult time.
