Pupil Well Being at Tickford Park Primary School

 

At Tickford Park Primary School we believe that children won't access the curriculum, their learning or the teaching unless they are happy and feel safe and secure; mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing are essential for successful learning.

We believe that children and young people develop the knowledge and understanding, skills, capabilities and attributes which they need for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing whilst in school and for the future. The mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing of everyone at TPPS is positively developed by fostering a safe, caring, supportive, purposeful environment that enables the development of relationships based on mutual respect.

TPPS  facilitate and support each child to:

  • develop their self-awareness, self-worth and respect for others

  • meet challenges, manage change and build relationships

  • experience personal achievement and build their resilience and confidence

  • understand and develop their physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing and social skills

  • understand how what they eat, how active they are and how decisions they make about their behaviour and relationships affect their physical and mental wellbeing

  • participate in a wide range of activities which promote a healthy lifestyle

  • understand that adults in the school community have a responsibility to look after them, listen to their concerns and involve others where necessary

  • assess and manage risk and understand the impact of risk-taking behaviour

  • reflect on their strengths and skills to help them to make informed choices when planning their next steps

  • acknowledge diversity and understand that it is everyone’s responsibility to challenge discrimination.
