Mental health and wellbeing are an important part of our whole school ethos. Our Whole School Provision Map provides more details of how the children are supported at Wiggonby.
At our school, we have a Mental Health & Wellbeing Team, who support our pupils and families with their mental health and wellbeing needs:
Miss Talbot - Mental Health & Wellbeing Lead
Mrs Jones - ELSA & Pastoral Care
Mrs Twentyman - Pastoral Care
Each week, the children in each class take part in a Jigsaw PSHE lesson. Jigsaw is a PSHE scheme which prepares the children with life skills, helping them to know and really value who they are, and understand how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.
Every child has the opportunity to take part in our forest school sessions, we are welcomed by each of them. When children attend forest school, our aim is for them to achieve personal and social development, learn about the environment and problem solving skills, build positive relationships, improve communication skills and learn about their own emotional wellbeing.
