We are a RRRR Lead School.
In the classroom, children will learn problem-solving skills, to develop empathy, support their own wellbeing and build healthy relationships with others.
When children build positive relationships with their teachers and peers they feel safer and happier at school, are more resilient and have positive social attitudes. Positive relationships also increase a child’s sense of social connectedness and belonging which can result in better health and academic outcomes.
These age-appropriate and evidence based materials are designed to enable teachers to develop student’s social and emotional capabilities to promote positive, healthy and respectful relationships.
Our children learn...
Emotional literacy’ is described as the ability to understand ourselves and other people, and in particular to be aware of, understand, and use information about the emotional states of ourselves and others with competence.
It includes the ability to understand, express and manage our own emotions and respond appropriately to the emotions of others.
Positive Coping & Stress Management
Coping strategies are the things people do to help them to self-calm, self-cheer, persevere and endure, release tension, deal with distress or uncertainty or lift their mood. When young people develop language around coping, they are more likely to be able to understand and deliberately utilise a range of different strategies for use in addressing different types of challenges.
Research shows that wellbeing, positive behaviour and achievement are more likely to occur when pupils are aware of their cognitive and character strengths and have opportunities to demonstrate and further develop them at school. When individuals engage their strengths they tend to learn more readily, perform at a higher level, are more motivated and confident, and have a stronger sense of confidence and satisfaction.
The coping repertoire of children and adolescents includes their problem-solving competencies and skills. Problem-solving is identified by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as a key skill for health. Young people need to be able to think logically and predict and evaluate the consequences of various actions.
Help-seeking is a coping strategy that involves seeking technical, instrumental, social or emotional support from other people. Help-seeking behaviour of children and young people is fundamental to their mental health and wellbeing. Encouraging and fostering help-seeking behaviour’s through school-based programs is one way to improve their mental health and wellbeing.
