Stay safe and keep well!

The emotional health and well-being of all members of Glade Primary School is fundamental to our philosophy and aims. We believe that emotional health is closely linked to mental health and that as a school we can encourage positive development of mental health in childhood. Children who are mentally healthy will be more able to achieve, progress and enjoy their time at school. 

At Glade, we strive to promote pupils spiritual, physical and emotional Well-being in a nurturing environment where they are secure, confident and well-motivated.

Glade is a Rights Respecting School. We follow a broad, balanced and rich curriculum which we feel benefits all children and helps them to develop their passions and individuality. We have staff who are trained as Mental Health First Aiders and ELSA (Emotional Literacy and Well-being Support Assistants.) When needed, children can access Art Therapy or Lego Therapy. There is a Well-being club which takes place at lunchtime. We are fortunate enough to have an amazing Sensory Room which provides a calming, stimulating environment when needed. Children have access to Bubble Time and regular P.S.H.E lessons. We employ the services of a Counsellor/Play Therapist who is trained to work with children as well as adults. In addition to this, we employ two Learning Mentors to guide and support our older children.

We work to build self-esteem and the ability listen, empathise and respect each other’s point of view in order to enable our children to become successful, independent, responsible citizens.

As you know, Usha Chudasama is our school Counsellor. She is a qualified Psychotherapist and through her work, she offers support to parents and carers. Usha often arranges on line webinars for this purpose.
