The Pastoral Team

Mental Health & Well-Being

At Queen’s Manor Primary School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and well-being of our pupils and staff. We know that everyone experiences challenges in life that can make us vulnerable and, at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s right and we all have a vital role to play.  

We aim to promote positive mental health and well-being for every member of our school community. Furthermore, we understand that mental health and well-being is just as important as physical health to our lives. We recognise that children’s mental health and overall well-being can affect their learning, lives, confidence and achievements.

A key aspect of our role as a school is to ensure that children get the right support to reach their potential or access help when they need it. We also play a vital role in ensuring that children learn about what they can do to maintain positive mental health, what can affect their mental health and where they can go if they need help and support.

Positive well-being is promoted throughout our curriculum and school culture. Through a carefully planned curriculum, our pupils acquire appropriate knowledge and develop the skills and understanding they need, so that they can lead confident, healthy, independent lives, and become resilient and responsible individuals.

If you ever feel that you need support, there are lots of places that are here to help.

Supporting bereaved children

The Childhood Bereavement Network offers advice on talking to children about death and gives practical support.

Winston’s Wish also provides guidance on how to tell a child or young person that someone has died from coronavirus.

Support Bereaved Children on Creative Education website. It gives lots of strategies and tips on how to talk to bereaved children.


We want Queen’s Manor Primary School to be enjoyable for every pupil. Pupils should be able to learn, appreciate their lessons, make friends and be enthusiastic about education. Our expectation of every pupil is that they demonstrate exemplary behaviour at all times. We actively discourage behaviour that would undermine learning or confidence between pupils, or pupils and staff. Outstanding attitudes to learning are the ultimate reward for good behaviour, however, we do also reward desirable behaviour with praise and tangible rewards and will impose consistent, clear and logical consequences for unacceptable or anti-social behaviour.

In order to enable effective teaching and learning to take place, good behaviour in all aspects of school life is essential.

We seek to create a caring and safe school by:

  • Encouraging and acknowledging prosocial behaviours
  • Encouraging children to take responsibility for their behaviour
  • Promoting self-esteem
  • Encouraging pupils to value and respect themselves and others
  • Providing a safe environment free from disruption, violence, bullying and any form of harassment
  • Ensuring consistency of response to positive and unacceptable behaviour
  • Seeking to develop positive relationships with parents and carers to support the development of children’s behaviour
  • Ensuring the implementation of this policy and the associated procedures
  • Promoting early intervention

It is extremely important that parents and carers understand and support the school’s Behaviour Policy and help their children understand why respecting this policy is important for the wellbeing of every student and the smooth running of the school.

Our expectations are summarised by our three school rules: Ready, Respectful and Safe
