Mental Health Awareness Week 18th-24th May 2020

Mental Health Awareness Week 18th-24th May 2020 1

The Mental Health Foundation runs a campaign each year to highlight and promote positive mental health. This year their theme is kindness.  


Why kindness?

One thing that we have seen all over the world is that kindness is prevailing in uncertain times.  

We have learnt that amid the fear, there is also community, support and hope. 

The added benefit of helping others is that it is good for our own mental health and wellbeing. It can help reduce stress and improve your emotional wellbeing. 


What can you do?

If you would like to take part then each day complete an act of kindness. The document from the Mental Health Foundation has lots of great ideas that can be done at home or at work. You can use the Kindness Calendar from the British Red Cross to record your acts of kindness. It can be done individually or even better as a family.


I would love to see what you have been doing. So if you have any photos and would like them on the website, please send them to me at 


Be kind and have fun with this! Mrs Batts

Aims and Objectives


Personal, social and health education (PSHE) enables children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society.  We encourage our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community.  In so doing we help develop their sense of self worth.  We teach them how society is organised and governed.  We ensure that they experience the process of democracy in school through the school council.  We teach them about rights and responsibilities. They learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse multicultural society.


The aims of personal, social and health education and citizenship are to enable the children to:


  • know and understand what constitutes a healthy lifestyle; 
  • be aware of safety issues; 
  • understand what makes for good relationships with others; 
  • have respect for others; 
  • be independent and responsible members of the school community; 
  • be positive and active members of a democratic society; 
  • develop self-confidence and self-esteem, and make informed choices regarding personal and social issues;  develop good relationships with other members of the school and the wider community.
