Wellbeing

At Crowlees we want our children, above all else, to be safe and happy.  We recognise the importance of looking after and developing our mental health and provide education and support to enable children and adults to develop their wellbeing.

 

All children are taught throughout the curriculum and specifically in Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE) and Sex and Relationships Education (SRE), about how to look after their mental and physical health and to develop positive life habits. Children are taught how to make healthy choices. Information is shared with parents.

Our trained child counsellor is available two days a week to support individual children with issues such as bereavement, family break ups and difficulties, illness and a range of mental health concerns.
