Positive mental health and emotional well-being is vital for our pupils. Our method of teaching and learning - I-Shine Learning - supports our pupils in school and Goldbeaters is a very happy and positive place to be and to learn in.
When children have significant challenges in their lives we are able to provide them with some additional support for their emotional well-being. The leadership team offer additional pastoral support to many children, children are referred to one of several counsellors and therapists who work in the school, children are supported by Barnet Integrated Clinical Services by referral and CAMHS.
We teach the children about their mental well-being through PSHE lessons, assemblies and through our whole school ethos. We promote mental and emotional health amongst the parent community, through coffee mornings, visiting experts and school newsletters.
SUPPORT FOR CHILDREN & FAMILIES
There are lots of resources for children and parents to tap into below but if you are worried about your child's mental health see one of the senior team at school or speak to your child's teacher.
Ollee is a digital friend for children aged 8-11 – created by Parent Zone and funded by BBC Children in Need's A Million & Me initiative. It helps them explore feelings around school, family, friends and the world – and share advice with a parent or trusted adult.
World Mental Health Day - 10th October 2022
This week all the pupils at Goldbeaters have reflected on their feelings every day through the week - the staff have done as well. We learnt in assembly that it helps to share with someone you trust if you feel low or just not quite yourself. Sometimes just sharing makes you feel a little bit better. There are lots of adults in school who know how to help children or to support them to help themselves.
