Mental Health First Aider

By Community, Mental Health, News, PSHE, Safeguarding

Introducing our first Mental Health First Aider. Last week, Mr Thompson completed a two day course learning how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. He is the first of many staff to complete this training.

At St Alban’s we support children’s mental health through teaching them the skills they need to recognise and deal with their emotions, and help those with difficulties get the support they need.

If you would like any further information about how we support children’s mental health, then please get in touch.

Thank you,

Mrs Gurner

Child Exploitation (CSE)

This week is Safeguarding Awareness Week and, following a request from the community, Rotherham LEA have produced a short awareness session on how people can spot the signs of Child Exploitation.

The session provides an overview of child exploitation, some of the signs you may see where you live or work and how you can respond confidently to concerns. The video lasts for 15 minutes and can be viewed using the link below.

 

Safeguarding is everyones responsibility.

Anti-Bullying Policy

Today in collective worship, house leaders presented our Anti-Bully Policy to the children. They were TRULY FABULOUS! This policy clearly explains exactly what children need to do if they experience bullying. A copy can be found in classrooms and on our school website.

Remember bullying is… Several Times On Purpose (STOP).

I will attach a copy of the policy in my next post.

Thank you,

The daily mile

By Community, Mental Health, Sport, Sporting Excellence

Every morning at 8:30am, Mrs Jepson has been encouraging children to run the daily mile in the junior playground. If your child would like to take part, then sign up with Mrs Jepson.

Teachers are also encouraging children to run the daily mile at play and lunchtime. To help the children keep track of every mile, Mrs Jepson has created a bar chart in the junior entrance hall. Ticking off the miles is very motivating!

Exercise and fresh air are so important for health and well being. So sign up to walk or run the daily mile.
