At Holy Cross and All Saints, we are committed to supporting the emotional wellbeing of our pupils and staff by fostering an environment which promotes positive emotional wellbeing. We recognise how important emotional wellbeing is to our lives in just the same way as physical health.
Our role in school is to ensure that children are able to understand and talk about their emotions as well as manage times of change and stress effectively. This policy outlines the approaches and strategies we use within our school to develop emotional literacy and support both pupils and staff wellbeing. Here at Holy Cross and All Saints, we have a supportive and caring ethos and our approach is respectful and kind, where each individual and contribution is valued.
Please take a look at our Wellbeing Policy below to find out what this looks like in the classroom.
Emotion Coaching is an approach that we use across our school to support children with their own emotions, building strategies and resilience to help them manage their emotions.
What is Emotion Coaching?
