Welcome to our well being page :-)
We hope that the information on this page is useful for you and your child.

Don't forget about yourself! Being a parent is a rewarding but tough job! We all need a helping hand from time to time. Looking after your own well being and mental health is important too.
Our staff at Dalestorth are here to support you. We will always make time to provide a listening ear if you need to talk.
Dalestorth's Well-Being Intent:
At Dalestorth Primary and Nursery School, we are aiming towards having a mentally healthy, supportive and caring school for our children, our adults and our wider community. We are on a journey to discover how we can support all those who are part of our school community. These are the first steps to creating a long lasting, purposeful approach to supporting mental health and emotional well-being across the life of Dalestorth. We are aiming to and beginning to focus on three key areas, to support, enhance, nurture and develop the emotional well-being, mindfulness and mental health of children, staff and parents along with the wider community.
We believe that children with good mental health and well-being can:
When children look after their mental health and develop their coping skills it can help them to boost their resilience, self-esteem and confidence. It can also help them learn to settle themselves, feel calm, and engage positively with their education - which can, in turn, improve their academic attainment. Therefore our aim is to develop our school into a mentally healthy one not just for our children, but all those who have any role to play in the life of Dalestorth Primary and Nursery School.
The activities take around 10 minutes to complete and no extra resources are needed.
They cover the following themes -feelings, staying connected, dealing with change, getting along, dealing with worries and relaxing. They are designed to be used with children aged 5-9 but can be adapted for younger or older children.
Have a look and if you would like a printed copy of any of the activities just let us know :-)
