Mental Wealth


We are proud to be a part of the myHappymind Family! myHappymind is a mental health and well-being programme to support children in learning habits to support their own mental health. It does also cover all the mandatory objectives from the DfE Relationship Education Curriculum and also around 70% of the PSHE objectives. We do this in addition to our PSHE programme of study as we believe mental wellness leads to mental wealth, if our children feel safe to learn they will achieve!

As a whole school program grounded in science and dedicated to building positive mental wellbeing, myHappymind helps children understand how their brains work and creates a culture that helps to build children's resilience, confidence, and self-esteem. myHappymind also teaches the children how to self-regulate and manage their emotions in stressful times, allowing them to be their very best selves!

There is an app specifically for parents to support your child's mental health at home. It is password protected so if this is something you would like access to, please contact Mrs Roach at school.
