Charborough Road Primary School fully recognises its responsibility under section 175 of the Education Act 2002 to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and to work together with other agencies to ensure effective arrangements within our school to identify, assess and support children who are suffering from harm.

Safeguarding our school community is of paramount importance. We ensure that all our staff are aware of, and have the skills to deal with, any child protection or safeguarding concerns. We have robust recruitment procedures and professional development programmes which ensure that all our staff uphold our strong ethos and values. All of our staff receive yearly updates as part of their child protection training.

Mental Health and Wellbeing

We have  a whole-school approach to mental health and wellbeing.  We believe it is central to  helping children flourish, learn and succeed by providing opportunities for them, and the adults around them, to develop the strengths and coping skills that underpin resilience.

At Charborough child, staff and parent/carer mental health and wellbeing is seen as ‘everybody’s business’ and we are all here to help each other and ensure all our children and families are prepared for life every day.

If you are struggling with mental health issues or your child is experiencing difficulties, please come and speak to us.  We work closely with support networks locally as well as being able to sign post you to other resources or online help.

 Good mental health among children

When children have good levels of wellbeing it helps them to:

  • learn and explore the world;
  • feel, express and manage positive and negative emotions;
  • form and maintain good relationships with others;
  • cope with, and manage, change, setbacks and uncertainty;
  • develop and thrive.

When children are supported to look after their mental health and develop their coping skills it can help them to boost their resilience, self-esteem and confidence. It can also help them learn to settle themselves, feel calm, and engage positively with their education – which can, in turn, improve their academic attainment.

Don’t forget it’s just as  important to look after both your physical health and that of your child as well as mental heath. Your state of wellbeing affects how you cope with stress, relate to others, make choices, and play a part in your family, community, workplace, school and among your friends.
