Positive Mental Health & Well-Being

At Acton CE Primary Academy we endeavor to support the emotional health and well-being of both our pupils and staff. Throughout our lives we all may face a range of challenges and as a result of these challenges anyone may need additional emotional support.

At our school we strive to help children in a number of ways. Along the journey children will:

  • Understand their emotions and reach their full potential.
  • Develop sensory awareness to regulate themselves.
  • Learn how to manage anxiety.
  • Manage emotional difficulties more effectively.
  • Become more emotionally resilient
  • Improve self-esteem and confidence
  • Communicate effectively and respectfully with peers and adults.
  • Develop and enhance social skills.
  • Build a toolkit of coping strategies when faced with challenging times.
  • Strengthen their relationships in school and at home.


At Acton we aim to meet the needs of each individual and offer different levels of support.

Universal Support – To meet the needs of all our pupils through our school ethos and our wider curriculum.

Additional support – For those who may have short term needs and those who may have been made vulnerable by life experiences.

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

Each class from Y1 – Y6 have their own Well-Being Warriors who help support the well-being of their peers. Our Well-Being Warriors deliver their own assemblies about mental health and well-being and have also helped organise mental health awareness days such as:
Hello Yellow
Walk and Talk
Find Your Brave.

Lead staff member: Mr Hollinrake (Y3)
