Mental Health and Well-Being

At Great Milton C of E Primary School we take the mental health of our school community very seriously.  We aim to provide our children with many skills to support their mental health as they grow, develop and experience different situations at primary school and at home.  We support this emotional growth through stories, assemblies, circle times, Forest School sessions and dedicated PSHE lessons and teaching through our carefully selected school values.

 

We support mental health charities through fundraising events across the year. As a school we have invested in a fantastic scheme called SCARF.  This programme is centred on a values-based and 'Growth Mindset' approach, which promotes positive behaviour: Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship (SCARF).  More than just a PSHE scheme of work, SCARF supports great learning every day.

 

We have added some information, advice, activities and stories for you to share and support you and your child and wider family with their mental health, particularly during this uncertain time but useful at any time.

Captain Tom's 100 Challenge

Captain Tom's 100 Challenge

 

On 6 April 2020, Captain Tom Moore set out round his garden to thank our NHS heroes. One hundred laps later, he’d raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS Covid-19 appeal. His simple message of hope, 'Tomorrow will be a good day', inspired millions around the world and brought comfort and joy to so many during the pandemic. Now it’s your turn to build on that legacy. Friday 30 April would have been his 101st birthday and to honour him and his amazing achievements, The Captain Tom Foundation would love everyone, of all ages and abilities, to take part in the Captain Tom 100.
