The wellbeing of our pupils and staff are at the forefront of our considerations at Mary Bassett School and is woven throughout the timetable and curriculum to ensure that all children are supported to be emotionally and physically healthy. At regular intervals through each academic year, the children are supported to think about their ‘Handy People’, who they can ask for support in everyday life. These people may be family members, teaching and learning staff, family friends or adults from a club they attend, all of whom could appropriately support the child if they needed. Teaching and learning at our school follows the Jigsaw programme of themes to support the exploration of emotional and physical changes that our children may experience. This supports our children to question and understand changes to themselves and others as they grow, including in Key Stage Two, changes resulting from puberty. Teachers use a range of materials and ideas, including supportive texts and ‘Philosophy for Children’, to support the exploration of emotions, relationships, life goals and respond to World events. By allowing the children to learn in a supportive and safe environment, they are able to openly, honestly and confidently discuss key issues that impact them in their lives and explore strategies to help them navigate through the impact of recent global experiences, as well as experiences in school and their future lives.
