Wellbeing

It is widely recognised that a child’s emotional health and wellbeing influences their cognitive development and learning, as well as their physical and social health and their mental wellbeing in adulthood. The department for Education recognises that, in order to help their pupils succeed, schools have a role to play in supporting them to be resilient and mentally healthy.


At St Thomas More, we are committed to promoting resilience and positive wellbeing for all our pupils and staff. We understand wellbeing as state of being comfortable, healthy and happy.

“Mental health is a state of wellbeing in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.”

(World Health Organisation, 2014)

We strive to create an environment that has a whole school approach, in providing excellent mental health support, understanding and intervention. We aim to put Wellbeing at the heart of our school to ensure successful learning and future outcomes for our children.
