We put pupil wellbeing first
Wellbeing is woven carefully into all aspects of our provision. Everything we do is built upon the quality of relationship between our teachers and pupils. Those insights enable us to shape an environment of understanding around each child. The tenet of Enjoyable Challenge requires that we are continually assessing that children are experiencing the right balance of stretch and enjoyment.
Certain features of our provision are designed to support this directly. Chafyn Champs is a mentor scheme, where older children support younger ones in tasks or activities, from reading together to swimming alongside them in the pool. Our annual wellbeing week provides a retreat from the usual pace and encourages a re-examination of our habits and practices. Those lessons then extend into the rest of the year in mindfulness or coping strategies. We have a resident Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) as well as access to a range of counsellors. Residential trips and excursions exercise and extend these aims further. Above all, these are not discrete ventures – wellbeing depends and thrives on blend and balance. Greater detail can be found in our Wellbeing policy.
Chafyn has a considerate and caring culture; wellbeing deserves to be at the heart of every good school.
