At Shepton Mallet Community Infants’ School & Nursery we promote the positive mental health of every member of our school community. We recognise that positive mental health is essential for effective learning and attainment. Positive wellbeing is promoted through the curriculum and other school activities. Through a carefully planned approach to PSHE, our pupils acquire the knowledge and develop the skills and understanding they need to help them lead confident, healthy, independent lives.
Feelings of wellbeing are fundamental to the overall health of an individual, enabling them to successfully overcome difficulties and achieve what they want out of life. Looking after your physical wellbeing is not only important for your physical health itself, or because good physical wellbeing will benefit your academic performance. Your physical wellbeing and your lifestyle will also have an impact on your mental wellbeing.
The way you feel, both physically and mentally, is the essence of living.
Place2Be's children's and young people's mental health and counselling services are based on almost 30 years of experience working within schools, supporting the wellbeing of children, young people, families and school staff across the UK.
