Wellbeing for Children
The emotional health and wellbeing of all members of Queensway Infant Academy and Nursery is fundamental to our values and aims. We believe that emotional health is closely linked to mental health and that as a school we can encourage positive development of mental health in childhood. Children who are mentally healthy will be more able to achieve, progress and enjoy their time at school.
At Queensway Infant Academy and Nursery, we strive to promote pupils spiritual, physical and emotional wellbeing in a nurturing environment where they are secure, confident and well-motivated. We use 'Twiggles' from our Life Lessons to support our children with breathing exercises and self hugs to help us to calm down and focus on the present.
Our classroom environments are designed such that children have a space to reflect or de-stress if they need to. Our children are also able to access our sensory room and the Woodland Hub to help them to regulate and talk through their feelings.
We follow a broad, balanced and rich curriculum which we feel benefits all children and helps them to develop their passions and individuality. Please refer to our curriculum page.
We work to build self-esteem and the ability to listen, empathise and respect each other’s point of view in order to enable our children to become successful, independent, responsible citizens.
