Mental Health & Wellbeing

At Elm Wood, we believe that emotional literacy is key for life-long learning. Children learn best when they feel calm, safe and ready. Therefore, it is vital that we provide them with the knowledge to recognise their emotions and the tools to begin to manage them. This isn't always straightforward, and for a variety of reasons, some children will need more support with this than others. This pyramid maps the provision that we offer pupils to meet their social, emotional and mental wellbeing needs. If you have any concerns about the wellbeing of a child, please speak to a member of staff.
