Here at Fordbridge Community Primary School we are committed to the wellbeing and mental health of the whole school community. We have implemented the SMILE approach across school in order for everyone to reach their full potential and to develop strategies to encourage positive mental health and wellbeing. This whole school approach addresses the 5 areas promoted by the NHS in order to manage our own wellbeing.
Socialise and connect with others
Move and get connected
Interest and notice things
Learn and keep learning
Engage in something and give to others
Remember that your mental health is just as important as your physical health!
The theme of this year's Children’s Mental Health Week is Express Yourself.
Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.
Fordbridge will be celebrating World Mental Health Day 2020 by taking part in Hello Yellow to raise money for YoungMinds. It’s simple: wear yellow, get fundraising and have fun!
Fordbridge will be taking part in Anti-Bullying Week as well as World Kindess Day this November.
If you can be anything, be kind.
