At All Saints, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils, their families and our staff. We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play. At our school we aim to:
• help children to understand their emotions and feelings better
• help children feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries
• help children socially to form and maintain relationships
• promote self-esteem and ensure children know that they count
• encourage children to be confident and take risks
• help children to be persistent even when faced with challenges
• help children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks

Good morning Everyone!
I wanted to give you details about my Headteacher Challenge! I have been reading the BFG at home with my girls and got to the chapter about dream jars and thought how lovely it would be if we could all each create a Hopes and Wishes jar for 2021. I’d like the children to decorate the jar with lots of wonderful things and then reach out to friends and family to ask them all for a hope or wish for the year. I know we can’t see people at the moment and this is the challenge, so you could call someone, send a message on a phone, facetime or set up a virtual meeting…. Any way you’d like to. (I will pop some example pictures of some jars below this e-mail.)
The BFG said:
“The dreams is always invisible until they is captured. After that they is losing a little of their invisibility.”
By capturing our loved ones hopes and dreams, over the year we will hopefully see them all clearly.
The jars can either be bought into school when you drop work off or, on the 11th February, I will be setting up another Teams meeting for you to share these with your friends and me in school.
Good luck everyone and enjoy!!!
