Well-Being at All Saints

At All Saints C of E Primary, we believe it is vital that all members of our community know how to look after their mental health and support their well-being. We teach our children strategies using Thrive Approach, to support them in the development of positive mental health and ways to cope and regulate when times get hard. 

Thrive Approach is a therapeutic approach to help support children with their emotional and social development. The Thrive approach offers practical strategies and techniques and is built around online assessments which identify children's emotional development and provides action plans for their individual needs.

 

Mental Health is “ the emotional and spiritual resilience which enables us to enjoy life and survive pain, suffering and disappointment. It is a positive sense of wellbeing and an underlying belief in our and others dignity and worth. It is influenced by our experience and our genetic inheritance. ”   World Health Organisation.

 

We have two Mental Health First Aiders here at All Saints: Mr Cutler-Thomas and Miss Jackson. Both hold a MHFA    ( Mental Health First Aid ) certificate. 

Mr Cutler-Thomas is the All Saints C of E Primary School's Well-being Lead.
