Well-being is paramount to our whole school approach. Being a small school, we pride ourselves on knowing our families well which allows us to identify need and provide support in a timely manner.

When we refer to families we not only mean our children, parents and wider family units but also our staff as they too are part of our Ditcheat family. As such, their well-being is also of the utmost importance.

We have a well-being action group led by Jo Crook and made up of children, parents, governors and staff who work towards making mental health and well-being a focus for the whole school, to reduce staff workload and develop SEMH across the school curriculum.

Actions completed this year include:

  • Well-being audit
  • Well-being INSET session
  • Well-being survey to staff
  • Well-being week planned
  • Mental health first aid training for Well-being Lead
  • Well-being week planned
  • Well-being

Minutes from the Wellbeing Action Group are here from December 2021
