Mental Health and Wellbeing 

Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much. - Helen Keller

At Dubmire, we aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our whole school community (children, staff, parents and carers), and recognise how important mental health and emotional wellbeing is to our lives in just the same way as physical health. We recognise that children’s mental health is a crucial factor in their overall wellbeing and can affect their learning and achievement. All children go through ups and downs during their school career and some face significant life events. At Dubmire, we take emotional health and mental well being very seriously.

Mental Health and Wellbeing Team

Our Wellbeing Team is made up of staff members from around the different areas of the school. Miss Hardy is Mental Health and Wellbeing Lead but together the team are looking at ways to support children, staff and carers to maintain positive mental health. They meet at least once every term and have regular discussions  to see how we can further support the wellbeing of our school community.

Wellbeing Events 2024

Children's Mental Health Week

             This year's theme was MY VOICE MATTERS! Children engaged with a range of activities across school from learning

                                          and singing 'I love my body' in Nursery to creating individual vision boards in Year 6. 

                                                       Neurodiversity Week                           

We used a resource from Mentally Healthy Schools to explain the term neurodiversity to all children. 

Then we used stories and picture books across school to celebrate amazing, neurodiverse children.
