Wellbeing and Mental Health

The wellbeing of every child is paramount to their success and happiness, both in and outside of school. We work closely with families to support children's mental health, focusing on managing emotions such as fear or anger and listening to and supporting families who may be experiencing tricky times at home. 


We use various universal and targeted strategies within school, such as Zones of Regulation, mindfulness techniques and ELSA sessions (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant). We are also able to access support from the Mental Health in Schools Team (NHS). If you have any concerns about your child's emotional wellbeing, please talk to your child's teacher or the school's Senior Mental Health Lead.


Dorset Council has put together a number of resources to support families' mental health and well-being during this very difficult time.
