Mental Health and Wellbeing

Mental Health and Wellbeing


The combination of pastoral care and quality of teaching at Bryn St Peter’s C.E. Primary School creates an environment that enables our children to thrive. Pupils show tolerance and understanding of others. They have a wide range of opportunities to understand the importance of good mental health and well- being – for example explicit teaching through our PSHE curriculum and this is reinforced consistently through the supportive, positive ethos of the school. We know that our children feel safe and secure, they know that adults will listen to them and they are valued. The World Health Organisation defines mental health as “a state of wellbeing in which every individual achieves their potential, copes with the normal stresses of life, works productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to their community”. Mental health includes our emotional, psychological and social wellbeing. It affects how we think, feel and act.

Good mental health helps children:

  • Learn and explore the world
  • feel, express and manage a range of positive and negative emotions
  • form and maintain good relationships with others
  • cope with, and manage change and uncertainty
  • develop and thrive.

Building strong mental health early in life can help children build their self-esteem, learn to settle themselves and engage positively with their education. This, in turn, can lead to improved academic attainment, enhanced future employment opportunities and positive life choices. In line with local and national agendas, we aim to further develop our whole school approaches to Mental Health and Wellbeing, thus providing opportunities for children, and the adults surrounding them, to develop the strengths and coping skills that underpin resilience.

We are a school that can help our pupils and staff flourish and succeed.
