Pakefield Primary

We are fully committed in  supporting all aspects of children's development and mental health. This year, 2019-2020 we continue to develop our mental health provision at Pakefield . 

Working together with our ALT North Suffolk family of schools, (Red Oak Primary School , Westwood Primary, Albert Pye Primary, Ravensmere Infants, Grove Primary and Reydon Primary School) the children from each school council devised a mental health and well being programme,  called CHIMP.  CHIMP means, Children’s Health Is Mental & Physical.

 

The schools then worked closely to decide what the children thought were important contributors to their Health. They devised the CHIMP dinner plate.

 

As a school we will be working through these over the coming year, during assembles, circle time activities and within our daily curriculum offer.  We have decided to start with eating and drinking healthily for the first half of the autumn term.

We have four qualified children's Mental Health First Aiders, these are: 

  • Mr Payne 
  • Miss Creasey
  • Mrs Bacon
  • Mrs Gooch

 

 If you would like any further  information, please speak to Mr Payne or Miss Creasey, or alternatively take a look at the following website.
