At Worthinghead all staff care about the wellbeing of the children in school. We have teaching support staff in all classrooms to provide additional help with children's work and learning. We also have additional staff to offer emotional support to the children, including Mrs Tremayne our Inclusion Mentor and Mrs Leng who is the school's Mental Health Champion.
The role of Mental Health Champion is a Bradford initiative and Mrs Leng receives regular training from the Education Psychology team to work with children who need this specialist support.
Within this role, Mrs Leng implements whole school relaxation and mindfulness activities. These sessions encourage staff and children to stop and pause, allowing time to reflect and to be more self-aware.
Yoga is also offered to Year 4, 5 and 6 on Friday lunchtimes, with targeted yoga for some Year 4, 5 and 6 pupils on a Tuesday morning.
