At Waycroft we ensure that we teach a curriculum, which is open and enables children to develop their critical thinking skills.
Staff regularly have mental health updates and work collaboratively to develop the provision delivered to the children. Alongside this, Waycroft are actively working to promote staff wellbeing as we believe in the positive circle of happy staff equals happy children. We are trying many strategies to promote positive wellbeing, such as a staff 'shout out' board for staff to put up a personal thank you for people who go the extra mile for them; extra training and research projects for staff to undertake in regards to their own interests and enhancing their knowledge on coping with stress and anxiety and have a staff wellbeing team who meet regularly. If anyone has any other ideas or services that could be offered to staff to promote their own mental health and wellbeing, could they please contact either myself or drop in to the school office.
The children regularly have assemblies that focus on mental health and wellbeing.
If there are any causes for concern, measures are put in to place for children- and adults- to get the support they need.
The Waycroft community are working hard to promote mental health awareness and support. (If you have any thoughts, ideas or anything to add about this please do not hesitate to get in touch!)
We advise parents where to look for additional information and support, one example being websites such as this website that gives information to parents and carers on how they can help manage stress in children: https://www.understood.org/en/friends-feelings/managing-feelings/stress-anxiety/10-ways-to-help-your-grade-schooler-manage-stress
