Welcome to our Wellbeing page!
At Coppetts Wood our vision is to develop a school community where children can enjoy a welcoming, secure, happy and healthy environment, where everyone can develop self-confidence, self-esteem, self motivation, independence, compassion, tolerance and understanding of others.
At Coppetts Wood Primary School we support the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils.
At our school we know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play.
We promote a mentally healthy environment through:-
- Promoting our school values
- Promoting pupil voice and opportunities to participate in decision-making
- Celebrating achievements
- Providing opportunities to develop a sense of worth through taking responsibility for themselves and others
- Providing opportunities to reflect
- Access to appropriate support that meets their needs.
Here you will find lots of support to help support children with their emotional and mental wellbeing
Remember that these three things will help with mental wellbeing!
- Eat well
- Sleep well
Our partners, Tavistock and Portman has created two videos to support parents of young children/people during the pandemic. These are short but with good advice and are presented by child psychotherapist Laverne Antrobus. The content was brought together as a result of questions from parents. I thought it would be helpful to share this with you.

Child psychotherapist Laverne Antrobus answers some of parents question and others:
- As a parent, how do you get “me” time during lockdown?
- Has your kids’ sibling rivalry taken on serious tones during lockdown?
