The Wellbeing Award for Schools (WAS)
Moorside Community Primary School continues to work towards achieving the Well being Award for Schools – a nationally recognised accreditation awarded for provision of quality support for the Emotional Well being and Mental Health of pupils, staff and families.
During autumn term 2017 and spring term 2018 we sought feedback from pupils, staff and parents to understand how well we are currently supporting emotional well being and mental health. During summer term 2018 we have been evaluating the questionnaires completed and formulated an action plan to develop our strengths and work on our weaker areas to ensure that as a school we provide the best support we can to meet the needs of our school community.
You can find our action plan on the school website under ‘Emotional Well being & Mental Health – Everybody’s business’ where we will also upload local and national service details and resources relating to emotional well being and mental health. In addition a dedicated school noticeboard and section in our school newsletter will provide regular updates and information.
We will be seeking an update review of your thoughts regarding how well we support emotional well being and mental health in November 2018 but welcome your ideas and suggestions anytime.
