Clowne Junior School

Working together for success and happiness

Mental Health and Wellbeing

At Clowne Junior School we want to provide an effective and enjoyable teaching and learning environment, where children and young people flourish.  We aim to promote the mental and physical health and emotional wellbeing for our staff, parents and pupils. Wellbeing is at the forefront of the school’s curriculum and promoting good mental health is a priority.

The World Health Organisation’s definition of mental health and wellbeing is:

 

“ A state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community”.
