Emotionally Healthy Schools

At Pear Tree Primary School our Emotionally Healthy Schools lead is Mrs. Debbie Swallow. Mrs Swallow has completed the Mental Health First Aid Youth Course. She works closely alongside Mrs. Lesley Wrenshall (SENco) to ensure the best possible outcome for our children. If you have any worries or concerns please contact us. All teaching staff at Pear Tree and several support staff have also completed the Mental Health Awareness Training.  

Here at Pear Tree we are extremely proud to have been awarded the AcSEED accreditation for Emotionally Healthy schools.  

The AcSEED review team were particularly impressed with:

  1. Students involved in the process of setting class rules.
  2. Rex the therapy dog.
  3. Play Therapy.
  4. Yoga sessions for students and staff.
  5. PSHE programme.
  6. Mental Health & Well Being weeks.
  7. ‘Champions for change’ – staff mentors for year 6 students.
  8. Wide array of initiatives to help promote positive mental health available.
  9. Wellbeing note on emails. 

The AcSEED review team also had the following recommendations:

  1. Posters informing students of emotional health services to be displayed in other areas apart from classroom such as quiet spaces and toilets - this feedback has been taken on board and acted on. 
  2. Information about wellbeing services on website to be more ‘child friendly’ - this is being developed. 
  3. Staff wellbeing policy - this is currently under development. 

Worried about your child? Need some support? You have come to the right place.
