Emotional Health and Mental Wellbeing
Over the course of their education, children spend over 7,800 hours at school. With such a huge amount of time spent in the classroom, schools provide an ideal environment for promoting good emotional wellbeing and identifying early behaviour changes and signs of mental distress. The social and emotional skills, knowledge and behaviours that young people learn in the classroom can help them to build resilience and set the pattern for how they will manage their mental health throughout their lives.
At Eaton, we take emotional health and mental wellbeing very seriously. Every class provides a wide range of activities that promote emotional health and mental well-being through our PHSE curriculum and My Happy Mind sessions.
We have a supportive and caring ethos and our approach is respectful and kind, where each individual and contribution is valued. We endeavour to ensure that children are able to manage times of change and stress and aim to ensure that they are supported to reach their potential or to access help when they need it.
Key Staff at Eaton
