Mental Health & Wellbeing
Strong emotional wellbeing and good health are all essential to children's development and will have a positive impact on teaching and learning. At Saxon Wood School, we aim to foster and strengthen our children's emotional intelligence and resilience using our school values in daily school life, through assemblies and within both the PSED (Personal, Social & Emotional Development) and PSHE (Personal, Social & Health Education) curriculums.
If your child is facing particular challenges, there are things that we can support you to do at home as a first step. Below are copies of our parent leaflets, that may be of use to you initially. Paper copies can be requested from the school office, as well as a listening ear.
