Our Time To Curriculum helps support children's social and emotional mental health and wellbeing. It is integral to our academic curriculum where children are provided with an allocated time within the school week to discuss and develop strategies on how to best support their mental wellbeing. The three pillars of focus cover reflecting, exploring and connecting. Reflecting, children are able to develop positive self awareness, identity, confidence and skills. Exploring, children have opportunities to explore the issues that they face. Connecting, children build positive relationships and connections within a community.
