- All children having increased awareness of their own emotions; most children to be able to label simple emotions within themselves and others; some children to use strategies to work through their emotions and return to a calm-alert state.
- All children to have knowledge of ways to improve their mental wellbeing i.e. talking, acts of kindness, physical exercise etc.
- Stigmas surrounding mental health are challenged in our school with everyone recognising that mental health is just as important as physical health and that it is OK to not be OK. Mental wellbeing to be given the same priority and status as physical wellbeing in our school.
Our PE curriculum uses the REAL PE resources a component of which focuses on emotional intelligence and communication as well the development of children’s understanding of the impact of physical health on well being.
