Mental Health and Wellbeing
At Alder Coppice Primary School, 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. Miss Regan is our Senior Mental Health lead in school. She works closely with our Headteacher, our safeguarding leads, Mrs Randall and Mrs Bown, as well as our SEND Lead Miss Rose and the rest of the staff team.
Developing mental health in children and young people is about supporting them to be self-aware enough to find wellbeing strategies that help them develop positive mental health. At Alder Coppice Primary School, we do our best to develop these strategies. This can be seen on a day to day basis with conversations between staff and pupils, our PSHE curriculum and opportunities that are threaded through our daily life in school. In addition, we provide more focused support for individuals and their specific needs.
