Mental health and wellbeing curriculum
At Tooting Primary School we recognise the importance of ensuring that our mental health and resilience is well looked after and so all children across our school from Reception to Year 6 have weekly Mindfulness and well being sessions.
During these sessions the children learn about many things, including:
- Specific areas of the brain and how these affect our ability to focus, make good choices, recognise when we need to steady ourselves when our body or mind is busy or out of balance.
- Ways that mindfulness can support them in many day-to-day activities, including concentration and memory, behavioural self- management, and in relationships with family and friends.
- Ways to respond rather than react – and therefore make better choices and take best care of themselves and others.
Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6) follow the Pawsb curriculum and EYFS (Reception) and Key Stage 1 (Years 1 to 2) follow Mindup.
We also have a very strong pastoral team - see our Pastoral page
