At Grove Lea Primary we have always believed in a holistic approach when providing an education for your child. For the last 2 years we have provided the children with a mental health and well being curriculum which has mainly been delivered through themed mornings each half term. For children to have the best possible.chances they need to be safe and happy. It is that simple. 
During this current situation difficulties have of course arisen. The importance of good mental health and well being has never been more important. Below we have listed some really useful websites for you access should you wish to or want to. We hope you find them useful. 
When the time comes to re opening transition will be extremely important. Mental health and well being will be at the top of our curriculum agenda. If at this time you have concerns over your child and have sadly had a loss in your family then I urge you to inform the class teacher so we can prepare for them the best we can. Everyone deals with things differently. 
I am fortunate to have already invested in training for my  staff in mental health and well being. We also have an Emotional, LIteracy Support Advisor; Mrs Mac and Miss Litchfield the Learning Mentor who have access to further resources and programmes should we need it. I, myself completed my Masters last year in promoting mental health within the primary curriculum so please be re assured we will do everything we can to support you. There has never been a more important time to maintain strong relationships with you as parents and carers. 
If you need to ask any questions please do. This can be done using personal message on class dojo. 
Thank you 
Mrs Henshall

Our Intent

If we wish for children in today’s society to reach their full potential we must offer a holistic curriculum that meets and develops their needs.  Teaching children about keeping mentally healthy is just as important as teaching them the fundamentals of reading, writing and maths.

The school worked in partnership with Leeds Beckett University towards the Mental Health and Well Being Award.  As part of the work we looked at improving the provision for students across school.  The policy below outlines how we will embed Mental Health and Well Being throughout the curriculum as well as the additional support we will offer for any children who may need it.  If you have any concerns regarding your child's emotional and social development please contact school.
