At Crowlands Primary School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff. 

We have a supportive and caring ethos and our approach is respectful and kind, where each individual and contribution is valued. 

At our school we know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play. We are actively promoting positive mental health and wellbeing via our school values.

These consist of:

We are PROUD

Persevering - We keep trying and never give up!

Resilient - We cope when things are tricky or don't go our way!

Outstanding – We are the best that we can be in all that we do!

Unique – We celebrate how special and individual we are!

Determined- We can achieve anything when we put our mind to it!


PROUD - Recognising all our successes in everything we do.

At our school we: 

  • 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.
