Personal Development

‘Pupils feel safe. They enjoy school and develop well personally and socially. Leaders support the most vulnerable pupils well.’  Ofsted, March 2019

‘The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is good.’ Ofsted, March 2019

‘In proportion to their years, they show an ability to listen, to give thanks, to forgive and to be forgiven. They have a strong understanding of right and wrong.’

Diocese of Leeds, Section 48 Inspection,  March 2018

As a family orientated school, we have created a whole-school approach to well-being, where children feel loved, valued and safe. By developing emotional literacy, we give children the tools and strategies they need to be resilient and express themselves comfortably.

 How do we do this?

All staff have a high level of understanding of how trauma effects behaviour and learning, and therefore apply specialist strategies that work in the best interest of each individual child.

We have strong links with all of our families and will go above and beyond to ensure they are supported, when needed.

Staff genuinely care about each child, ensuring talent is nurtured to help them reach their maximum potential.

In addition to ‘Mindfulness Monday’ & ‘Well- Being Wednesday’, our experienced and well trained staff offer a range of nurture programmes including:

  • Circle Time
  • Lego Therapy
  • Art Therapy
  • 1-1 Nurture Support
  • Animal Therapy

Children in KS2 have all been given a Bee You Journal, which they use on a regular basis as past of our well-being programme.

The Bee You Kids Journal is a fun tool to develop our children’s mental wellbeing and emotional intelligence.

In a world that is constantly trying to encourage our children to change, we believe the most important thing our children can be is themselves.

The Bee You Kids Journal was created by Luke Ambler.

The Journal has many areas from; daily reflections, expression zones, bee honest questions to scribble pages!
