Mental Health & Wellbeing

Mental Health and Wellbeing

The growing number of children and young people experiencing poor mental health is one of the biggest challenges facing our teachers today. An estimated three children in every classroom have a diagnosable mental health problem. This rises to one in four children when we include emotional distress (Young Minds, 2020). Sport4Primary aims to support schools in raising awareness of mental health and wellbeing.

Place 2 Be have teamed up with BAFTA Kids and Oak National Academy to create a free assembly featuring pupils and well known-faces discussing the theme of ‘Express Yourself’.

Hosted by Blue Peter’s Lindsey Russell, and CBBC Presenter and Place2Be Champion Rhys Stephenson, the assembly is a great way to help children to explore the creative ways they can share their thoughts and feelings.

Sport4Primary’s Wellbeing Curriculum

Our wellbeing programme promotes positive mental health, aiming to help children become more resilient, happy and successful and to work in a pro-active way to avoid problems arising.

We do this by:

  • Promoting self-esteem and ensuring children understand their importance in the world.
  • Helping children to be resilient learners and to manage setbacks.
  • Teaching children social and emotional skills and an awareness of mental health.
  • Developing an open culture where it’s normal to talk about mental health.
  • Helping children to develop social relationships, support each other and seek help when they need it.
