Welcome to our Wellbeing Page!
We are committed to supporting the emotional wellbeing of pupils, staff, and parents. Our Mental Health Lead is Mrs Grattan and can be contacted via the school office.
Our pupils are encouraged to make the most of their time at Higham Primary School, so every effort is made to remove obstacles to successful learning and equip our pupils with the confidence and skills to be enthusiastic and engaged in their learning.
We aim to:
Respect, Responsibility, Teamwork, Kindness, Perseverance and Creativity;
Here at Higham Primary School, we have started on the journey of promoting and advocating a healthier workplace and last year was awarded the Bronze Award from the Kent and Medway Healthy Workplaces Programme and are now nearly at the end of gaining our Silver award.
The programme is designed to focus on staffs wellbeing, whether it is mental health, nutritional or lifestyle support and is designed to help employers open the door of communication and be proactive in their staffs wellbeing. We decided to sign up to ensure that we do what we can to make sure our team are supported in the right way.
The Bronze level indicates that we have all the building blocks in place to embed a healthy workplace, and to achieve this level we have had to submit evidence of things like risk assessments, our health and safety policy, staff questionnaires etc.
There are three further levels of award that can be achieved, which are Silver (nearly there!), Gold and Platinum which we look forward to reaching.
Our Bronze certificate is proudly displayed in the schools reception area but please know that our commitment extends beyond putting a certificate on the wall and we genuinely care that our team feel looked after and valued.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
