Mental Health and Well-being


As a school, we take mental health and wellbeing very seriously. We are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff. 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.



                                                          At our school we:                                                                                                           


We offer different levels of support:

Universal Support – To meet the needs of all our pupils through our overall ethos and our wider curriculum. For instance, developing resilience for all.
Additional support – For those who may have short-term needs and those who may have been made vulnerable by life experiences such as bereavement.
Targeted support – For pupils who need more differentiated support and resources or specific targeted interventions such as nurture groups or support from Mrs Rogers, our pastoral support officer.

We all have times when we have low Mental Wellbeing, where we feel stressed, upset or find it difficult to cope.

Tillington Manor is extremely fortunate to have 'The Hive' staffed by Mrs Rogers who is our Pastoral Support Officer.


Children visit 'The Hive' for a variety of reasons.  Mrs Rogers offers support for children in our school.  Programmes are offered to help children manage their anger or their anxiety and individual or group sessions are planned to help children to develop their self esteem and self confidence. The room is clearly displayed so that all children and visitors of the school are aware of the purpose and location. 

A comfortable seating area is provided so that the children can feel relaxed. A selection of books relating to sensitive topics are available for use in school or to take home.

The 'Stars shine brightly' display promotes positive feelings towards learning. 

The Emotion Tree and Bee Proud Board helps children to express their feelings through pictures when they can't find the right words.
