Be the best you can be!

Emotional Health & Wellbeing

At Clarborough Primary School we actively encourage our pupils to take care of their emotional health and wellbeing, in order to build healthy minds and bodies that will help them 'be the best they can be'.  We understand that without the basic emotional needs of our pupils being met, they will not be in the best position to learn and so, we do all that we can to support and help them develop life skills that they can take with them into secondary education and beyond.
Our designated Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator uses organisations such as CASY counselling services, CAMHS and Mustard Seed to provide guidance and support to our pupils and their families. Should additional needs be identified, we use other outside agencies to help support our pupils and their families as and when required.
Children are also taught mindfulness using the Take Five Programme developed by Each Amazing Breath.  This is practiced in class with their Teachers on a regular basis, with sessions led by pupil ambassadors.
Lastly pupils in need are able to access Emotional Literacy support from our ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) and her trained Assistance dog, using ELSA interventions and Drawing and Talking therapy.
