We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health.
At Goffs Oak Primary School we take supporting children and families with mental health seriously. Our aim is to ensure that we promote good mental health across the whole school including: staff, governors, parents and pupils. We encourage our children to develop strategies for good mental health and create environments in which they can flourish. PSHE lessons provide safe spaces for children to discuss general issues and to recommend healthy ways to work through them.
On Tuesday 11th June Year 5/6 were visited Tom from Retune, a company which work with schools to promote wellbeing.
The children were given the opportunity to promote their wellbeing and mindfulness through live music and explored song writing as a strategy, based on the themes they raised themselves. They were encouraged to explore the links between creativity and emotional resilience.
A thoroughly enjoyable and thought provoking experience for all.
