Mental Health at Bocking

We offer a range of tools and resources to address pupils’ social, emotional and mental health needs. The aim isn’t for teachers to focus on the children with the greatest needs, but to develop an inclusive, whole-class approach that allows pupils to develop strategies and raise their own awareness. 

Our nurturing tools and resources can be used throughout the school day (in the classroom or in small groups) to help children develop the skills they need to engage with their learning and make the most of their time at school.

These strategies could include:

  • Making time for social and emotional learning, either during targeted PSHE lessons or by embedding it throughout the curriculum.
  • Giving pupils the opportunity to practice their social and emotional skills, for example by encouraging them to work in pairs and groups.
  • Modelling good social and emotional skills themselves, when interacting with pupils and other staff members.
