Wellbeing for Education
FREE TO RESIDENTS OF REDBRIDGE: ONLINE COURSES ABOUT CHILDRENS’ EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT!
To all parents, grandparents and carers,
We believe parents are their children's first and most important educators.
We are committed to developing a strong relationship between parents and school.
We also encourage children to develop 'growth mind-sets', in which they believe that ability and success are not pre-determined, but due to learning.
We are therefore delighted to extend a growth and learning opportunity to you as parents and carers as well.
Redbridge Council have invested in a multi-user licence for 3 award winning, quality marked, evidence based online courses by the Solihull Approach (a national NHS organisation) and we are therefore delighted to offer you FREE indefinite access to the courses, normally £19-£39 per person. The licence is valid until April 2021 so please take advantage of this fantastic resource while you can. Once you have accessed the courses using this code you will have non-expiring access even after the code expires.
These courses are for ALL parents-to-be, parents, grandparents or carers of any child from the antenatal period to age 18 years who want to be the best they can be. You don’t need to be struggling.

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.
