MEET THE WELL-BEING TEAM
Hello and welcome to our Well-being page.
Here you will find information about our Well-being team here at
The Hythe Community Primary School.
At The Hythe Community Primary School our aim is to develop all pupils educationally, emotionally, morally and physically. As well as caring for their education we also care for their mental health and Well-being and feel that it is essential to provide children with information to enable them to make life long, well informed decisions about their diet and health.
The Hythe Community Primary School recognises that children and families may need support at different times throughout their journey with us.

LOOKING AFTER OUR EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING AND MENTAL HEALTH
What we do at The Hythe Community Primary School to support children’s emotional well-being and mental health.
The Hythe Community Primary School is committed to creating a happy, caring and supportive environment. As well as a learning environment, the school ensures there is a positive, supportive and inclusive ethos where children can thrive and achieve their personal best.
Our well-being lead, Mrs McKee who is also a member of the Senior Leadership Team, meets with children and their families regularly to promote emotional health and well-being.
Mrs McKee can be contacted on - firstname.lastname@example.org
Personal, Social, Citizen and Health Education (PSCHE) is central to the curriculum across the whole school. PSCHE assists pupils to cope with changes at puberty, introduces them to a wider world, manage transitions and enables them to make an active contribution to their communities. The concepts covered in PSCHE include identity, managing feelings and emotions, relationships, change, resilience and being healthy. These are all taught alongside physical, emotional and social well-being.
Our PSCHE lead is Mrs Ahmed - email@example.com
The Hythe Community Primary School offers a nurturing provision for children who experience bereavement, anxiety and any other life experiences that may affect their emotional well-being or mental health. These children are identified and supported by a fully trained ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) who will offer regular 1:1 or small group nurture support. By putting all pupils at the heart of the school focus, we are able to support the child in their specific needs. Children are supported in the development of their emotional literacy by our ELSA, Mr Carter along with Mrs McKee, who will determined the length of sessions and time depending on individual needs. These maybe a 'drop in' or structured timetable session. As a school, we have and continue to access outside help and support for pupils when required.
Our school ELSA is Mr Carter - firstname.lastname@example.org

Within the National Curriculum, every child has a minimum of two hours of physical education each week. This is taught by our experienced Sports Coach, Mr Roots who also organises lunchtime sports activities, sports trips and after school clubs. We aim for the majority of pupils to attend at least one sport-related after-school club, and many take part in inter-school sporting competitions. To support children’s social and emotional development, and their well-being we offer an extensive range of after-school clubs - all with a view to increasing the range of experiences that children have, enabling them to make informed choices for adult life. Activities are designed to be fun and cater for a wide variety of interests.
