Mental Health and Wellbeing

Our Well Being provision at Colliers Green.

Our vision is to provide a welcoming, safe and nurturing learning environment and to make all our children, parents, staff and visitors feel valued, important and cared for, this we feel is fundamental to our wellbeing provision. We strongly believe that all children need to feel safe and happy in order to thrive and develop into the best person they can be.

The champions will help Mrs Salter to capture the “Childs voice” on ideas of how the school can ensure the children are safe, happy and confident and so they know who they can turn to if they need help and support.

Role of the Champions

  2. To demonstrate kindness, empathy and a caring attitude.
  3. To be helpful towards others and support their peers.
