Mental Well being
At Date Palm Primary School, we are committed to supporting the mental health and well being of our pupils, parents and staff. We understand that everyone experiences challenges in their lives and these changes can make us vulnerable and in need of emotional support.
At Date Palm we:
- help pupils to understand their emotions and feelings
- help pupils feel comfortable with sharing any concerns or worries
- help pupils to form and maintain relationships
- promote self esteem and ensure pupils know that they are values
- encourage pupils to be confident
- help pupils to develop resilience
