Mental Health and Well-Being

Mental Health and Well-Being at Killamarsh Infant and Nursery 


We have high expectations of our children academically, and at our school we understand that good mental health is a vital part of achieving this. We teach our children the early skills they will build on through their entire lives to help protect them from the stress and anxiety of modern life. 


We are determined that our children will grow up understanding there is no more a stigma around talking about mental health as there is talking about physical health. We want our children to have embedded skills around resilience and optimism which will help them navigate through the rest of their lives. 


At Killamarsh Infant & Nursery school, there are many ways in which we support the children’s mental health and well-being. For example:

  • Throughout our curriculum and everyday school life we encourage and support the children to understand their feelings and emotions.
  • Embedded in our behaviour policy, we encourage the children to be resilient when challenges occur, to be ready to learn having a positive mindset, and to be respectful to others.
  • We encourage the children to be self-confident and develop their self-esteem, ensuring that they all know that they matter.
  • We support children to know that they can talk to us and open up, sharing their feelings and worries.
  • We support the children to build and maintain positive social relationships with others.


We place a high value on being outdoors and looking after each other.
