Mental Health and Wellbeing

Ethelbert Road Primary School understands that a mentally healthy school is one that adopts a whole-school approach to mental health and wellbeing. We support children to flourish, learn and succeed by providing opportunities for them, and the adults around them, to develop the strengths and coping skills that underpin resilience. We see positive mental health and wellbeing as fundamental to our values, mission and culture. Our School rules of 'Be safe', 'Be kind', 'Be ready' reflect this ethos. 

 

Our Mental Health and Wellbeing Manager supports our children, parents, staff and governors within a whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing. If you would like to meet with our Mental Health and Wellbeing Manager, please contact the school office at office@ethelbert-road.kent.sch.uk, or telephone to arrange an appointment with Mrs Cornall on 01795 533124.

heart Seven Days of Kindness Calendar heart

In celebration of Mental Health Awareness Week 2020 (commencing 18th May) and the theme of kindness, primary school communities are being encouraged to get mentally healthy by spreading a little kindness. This calendar, designed to be used throughout Mental Health Awareness Week (in Lockdown) encourages pupils to do two acts of kindness each day - one to someone else and one to themselves. Have fun! The elephants are a 'kindness' gift from Mrs Cornall xxx
