Health and Well Being

 

At St. Patrick's we are committed to all aspects of children's development.

 

Some of the strategies we use to support children's health and well being are.....

 

  • The Daily Mile: Y6 have trialled walking a mile each day - getting lots of Vitamin D and regular daily exercise.
  • All after school sports are free 
  • Music - every child learns an instrument in Key Stage 2
  • Nature Led interventions and support
  • Forest School

 

We are proud to be a 'My Happy Mind' school.

 

The programme runs across school and is taught weekly. It fits in really well with our 'Learning Powers' and ensures directed time is regularly devoted to health and mental well being.

 

We believe in teaching the science and then embedding habits around mental wellbeing in a fun and positive way. Rather than focussing on the ‘issues’ or challenges overtly we take a preventative approach by giving children the understanding and tools to cope when times get hard. Research shows that preventative approaches are both more accessible for children and are more likely to lead to lasting change.
