Larchfield Primary and Nursery School

Our children are central to all that we do.


Emotional Health and Wellbeing Champions


Our school believes that the emotional health and well-being of everyone is really important and that if we are not emotionally healthy and if we do not feel good, we will not be able to learn effectively.

To help promote emotional health and well-being and remind everybody of its importance, we have emotional well-being champions. This is a group of year six children who have undertaken training in school.

The emotional wellbeing champions meet regularly with the school’s Inclusion Lead, Emotional Mental Health practitioner (EMP) and Miss Dean, and lead on activities to promote and remind everyone of the importance of wellbeing and of how good emotional health and wellbeing can be realised.

They carry out ‘campaigns’ across the school and each have a ‘link class’ that they work with.

Here are some comments from our champions about why they think emotional health and wellbeing is so important.

‘I think that mental health is very important for your physical health to be healthy’ - Gerard

‘I think that mental health is very important so no one feels left out and their ‘buckets’ are full which makes them happy – Chloe

‘Mental health is so important for your physical health and we need to fill our ‘buckets’ to make them full and have good mental health’ – Mason

‘ I think that mental health is important to take good care of your body and always be happy and we can help everyone out, including the teachers, so everyone has good mental health’ – Yaseen ‘
