Pastoral Support at Bare Trees
Our Pastoral Mission Statement
Bare Trees Primary School actively values and supports pupils and staff on their journey to positive mental health. We aim to make a positive difference to pupils and staff mental health and wellbeing.
Over the course of their education, children spend over 7,800 hours at school. With such a huge amount of time spent in the classroom, schools provide an ideal environment for promoting good emotional wellbeing and identifying early behaviour changes and signs of mental distress. Evidence shows that health and wellbeing programmes in schools, can lead to significant improvements in children's mental health, and social and emotional skill.
