Mental Health and Well being

We believe that a healthy mind is as essential as a healthy body. 

At St Philips we have a number of projects running to support the mental well being of our whole school family.

Staff have recently undertaken a 6 week personal mindfulness course which we are gradually aiming to role out to our whole school.

We currently have

  • Individual and group programmes such a volcano in my tummy, Kid skills and other published emotional well being programmes
  • a focus for our  Governing Board Vision and Values Committee is Staff well being.
  • Pastoral support for children, our adult workforce and our families from our Vicar
  • Weekly counselling service - Brighter Horizons (by arrangement)
  • We celebrate and teach about a healthy mind at regular points including special events such as  Mental Health and Well being day. 
  • Displays around school
  • Worry boxes and posters to help
  • Adults who will always listen

As a Church of England school we hope that you feel that we are able to provide you and your child with 

An education for knowledge and skills

An education for hope and aspiration

An education for community and living well

An education for dignity and respect.

With all of these elements embedded across our curriculum offer we cannot fail to have children who flourish.
