Mental Wellbeing

Mental Wellbeing
 “Mental health is a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.” (World Health Organization)
At Perran-ar-Worthal, we aim to promote positive mental health for every member of our community: children, parents and staff.
This page hopes to provide parents with support for children's mental health.
A trauma informed school is one that is able to support children who suffer with trauma, struggle with mental health and whose troubled behaviour acts as a barrier to learning.
At Perran-ar-Worthal School, we are committed to ensuring that we develop a Trauma and Mental Health Informed Approach which will protect our school community members: staff, children and parents.

To ensure every child develops positive mental health, our aim is to:

  • support children to make sense of their experience(s)
  • find ways to manage their emotions and feelings
  • create an environment of safety, connection and compassion at all times
  • build a school network of strong, positive, supportive relationships
  • ensure children maintain the capacity to learn, despite difficult events that may occur
