Mental Health and Wellbeing

At Riddings Infant and Nursery School children’s wellbeing is considered of great importance and we would like to help you support your child with this too.

Wellbeing is about feeling good and functioning well. It includes our thoughts and feelings, how we feel life is going, and how we feel about our family, friends, health, home, school, and the choices we have. We all need to connect with our own wellbeing. 

We can all look after our own wellbeing by moving our bodies more, eating well, sleep, kindness, connection, learning, creativity, nature. Teaching how to look after our own wellbeing is an important part of what we do at Riddings Infant school through our curriculum and assemblies.

Please see below a link to the Derbyshire wellbeing support page for parents and carers. Don't forget we are also here for you as a school, please see one of our pastoral team for further support.
