Mental health

Our work with Young Minds

The mental health charity, Young Minds, spent a day at our school as we celebrated World Mental Health Day #Hello Yellow.

March 2023


Following weekly training sessions from members of Red Balloon, 16 Year 5 mental health 'Champions' will shortly begin mentoring Year 4 pupils to encourage them to look after their emotional, physical and dietary wellbeing through a programme known as the 'Champions Challenge'


Each day for a period of 6 weeks, Year 4 pupils will be encouraged to record in a wellbeing journal something that was good for their physical health, something that helped their emotional wellbeing and a healthy meal they managed to eat.

Once a week, the journals will be given to our Year 5 'Champions' who will monitor each child's progress offering advice and liaising with teaching staff if necessary.

The programme was kick started during this morning's assembly when the Year 5 'Champions' presented the project to all of our KeyStage 2 pupils.

Year 5 pupil, Thomas, who was interviewed proudly wearing his 'Champions' badge, was very enthusiastic about the 'Champions Challenge'. "I'm excited about this", he said, "I think it's brilliant being able to help others and not just look after ourselves."



#Hello Yellow#Young Minds

On Monday 10th October, we wore yellow to raise awareness of the importance of good mental health in young people. YoungMinds, the charity, whose camera crew spent the day with us, interviewing children and staff and observing the activities that we took part in, wrote this to Ms Lampard after their visit,” I’m just reaching out to show my gratitude to everyone at your school involved in the #HelloYellow filming from earlier this week ❤ you were the perfect school! We can’t thank you enough for your flexibility and understanding around the day, and especially for all the organised yellow activities and plans – we can’t wait to see the footage! With your help, we’ll have a video and other footage to promote #HelloYellow to other schools next year and long into the future. It’s so vital to grow the campaign and in-turn supporting more young people with their mental health.”                
 In addition to raising awareness, we raised £296.18 in donations to YoungMinds, thank you! We look forward to sharing the film with you when we get it!
