St Bernadette Catholic Primary School

Positive mental health & well-being

Family Support Newsletter Jan 2021

Children’s social, emotional and mental health development is a key factor when it comes to readiness to learn. We are keen to support, nurture and develop this at St Bernadette in a variety of ways. This is developed firstly through our PSHCE curriculum, which is taught throughout the school from Nursery to year 6. All year groups are taught according to the themes of Relationships, Living in the Wider world and Health and Well-being.  


In addition to this, we have specialist staff and specific interventions for children across the school. Interventions are selected and adapted to each child’s needs.


  • Zones of regulation-Using a whole school approach to identify, understand and

voice their feelings and emotions.


  • On site Learning Mentor who is responsible for helping children overcome barriers to learning working 1:1 with children inside and outside the classroom


  • ELSA- (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant)-  A fully trained ELSA to support children with developing and managing feelings and emotions.

At St Bernadette we promote positive mental health and well-being.  Please take a look and try some of these ideas to support you and you children.  

Coming soon!
