We work together to create a safe base from which children and adults can develop and flourish. We believe relationships are at the heart of developing that sense of wellbeing and have a culture of mutual respect, empathy and caring for each other.
The emotional health and wellbeing of all members of Coleridge Primary School is fundamental to our philosophy and aims. We believe that emotional health is closely linked to mental health and that as a school we can encourage resilience and positive development of mental health in childhood. Emotional wellbeing is a key factor in enabling children to achieve their full educational potential and to become responsible individuals, well prepared for life beyond school.

The Well-being team have collated some information that we hope you will find helpful in supporting your child, either in the preparation for returning to school, or some ideas for supporting children who are still at home. There are also some resources for adults too.
If you would like any further information, please get in touch and we will try to assist. If you would like any of the documents printed, please let us know and we can have them delivered to you or arrange for you to collect.
One part of how we mange emotional health and wellbeing at Coleridge is through mindfulness activities. Our school counsellor Jane O’Rourke has put together the following mindful breathing exercises that you can use with your children at home. They’re great for adults too!
You can listen to the exercises using the videos below, or you can view them on our YouTube channel.
