What does Waycroft do to help emotional and mental wellbeing?

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.

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
