Well BeinG

We are passionate about supporting the children and young people of today to effectively manage their lives and their wellbeing, to help and support others and to become future, responsible custodians of a healthy and sustainable world. 

The 5 ways to wellbeing

 

At Towers we do the following:

  • help children to understand their emotions and feelings better                             
  • help children feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries
  • help children socially to form and maintain relationships
  • promote self esteem and ensure children know that they count
  • encourage children to be confident and ‘dare to be different’
  • help children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks

We offer different levels of support

Universal Support- To meet the needs of all our pupils  through our overall ethos and our wider curriculum. For instance developing resilience for all.

Additional support- For those who may have short term needs and those who may have been made vulnerable by life experiences such as bereavement.  

Targeted support-  For pupils who need more differentiated support and resources or specific targeted interventions such as wellbeing groups or personal mentors.

 

  We have an ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) to work with our children.
