At Radbrook Primary School promoting and supporting mental health is extremely important. We know that mental health is as important as physical health. Through our Darwin Growth Curriculum (DGC) and PSHE lessons, we teach our children how to be healthy both mentally and physically and talk about this in terms of healthy eating, sleeping and exercise. The DGC also develops children’s sense of self-belief to develop the qualities and attributes they need to thrive as individuals.
Identifying Mental Health and Wellbeing Needs
Severn Bridges MAT follows the I-thrive model when identifying children’s mental health and wellbeing needs.

Kay Brophy’s ‘Finding Your Way’ programme which teaches children the 6 Core Emotions. Children are taught about the different emotions through the use of characters that live in fictional Lifeland. The characters take the reader on a journey around Lifeland where, with help from someone they trust, the loveable characters manage to work through their emotions and find a way back to happiness hills. The Lifeland map is at the front of each book to help children visualise the characters journey.
