Our aim is to create a “joined-up” approach to mental well-being across the school, through PSHE, PE and SEND, leading to:

  • 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 well-being 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 well being to be given the same priority and status as physical well being in our school.

We have introduced a new Relationships Education curriculum to structure learning at whole school level.

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.

Please look at the Wellbeing page under Our Curriculum for the detail and plans of how we deliver learning for Wellbeing.

Trauma Informed Schools

Roche School is a Trauma Informed School (TIS), which means we have mechanisms
in place to support children who suffer with trauma or mental health problems,
or whose behaviours act as a barrier to learning. Click the link below to find out more about TIS.
