Well Being

The Well Being of all of our staff and pupils is at the very heart of all that we do at Grange Primary Academy.  Without good physical and mental health we are not able to learn and grow.

We have a dedicated member of staff, Ms Green who leads our Staff & Pupil Well Being Team.  Her role in school is to support staff and pupils so that we can all work together safely and healthily to achieve our aims and aspirations.

The school has been recognised locally and nationally for its hard work and dedication in this area.

Well Being for Children

Ms Green and other, trained members of staff will run a variety of well being interventions for our children.  These are based upon refferalls from outside professionals, conversations with parents and staff and from our own, bespoke Well Being Tracker that we use termly to identify children that may require extra support and guidance.  Some of these interventions may include;

  • Protective Behaviours
