Mrs Jane Williams - Wellbeing Champion

Wellbeing and Emotional literacy at Rowledge

Rowledge C of E Primary School promotes emotional wellbeing and mental health within school.  We really care about the emotional wellbeing of everyone involved within the school community.  

Our school wellbeing champion, Mrs Williams, drives initatives and interventions to enable all pupils to access a toolkit of positive mental health and wellbeing resources. 

This page is an avenue to access online resources and wellbeing guidance for children.  As well as using these resources please feel free to contact Mrs Williams or our SENDCo and Heateacher Ms Oliver for further details on how the school can support a healthy mental attitude for children.

At our school we aim to:

  • help children to understand their emotions and feelings better
  • help children feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries
  • help children socially to form and maintain relationships
  • promote self-esteem and ensure children know that they count
  • encourage children to be confident and ‘dare to be different’
  • help children to be persistent even when faced with challenges
  • help children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks

We are proud to use the Thrive approach as one of our wellbeing interventions.  Thrive is a therapeutic approach to help support children with their emotional and social development.

Based on established neuroscience, attachment theory and child development, the Thrive Approach provides training and an online profiling and action-planning tool to equip adults with the knowledge, insights and resources needed to develop the relationships that help children and young people to flourish and learn.

To find out more about the Thrive approach, and how we apply this at school please get in touch with Ms Oliver.


We recognise that there is a growing need to support children to understand their differing experiences and explore their mental health needs.  We understand that for parents, waiting lists with Childrens Mental Health Services may perturb them from seeking help.

As a school, we have been made aware of different therapists and child councillors who have supported families and children privately.  We are always happy to discuss your children's needs and see if we can help in any way.


There are a wealth of online resources to help your child to understand the importance of emotional intelligence, mindfullness and personal wellbeing.  Below is a list of some of the resources that we use at school that help to support childrens wellbeing. 

HEART SMARTA creative new approach to the PSHE Curriculum that equips them with foundational principles, skills, habits and a mindset that will improve their mental health, relationships and academic achievement.


  GO NOODLEGo Noodle is an online resource that helps promote movement and mindfullness in children using a library of video clips to guide and inspire children.  Themes include Brain Gym, Workouts, Yoga and Meditation.


  CHANGE 4 LIFE - Rowledge uses the NHS project to help educate children about healthy food choices and the impact these choices have on all aspects of their wellbeing.


   DAILY MILEInspired by the Daily Mile initative the school has daily outdoor excersise built into our curriculum.  Throughout the school children go out into the fresh air to walk, skip or run for 10 minutes every day.


  FEIPS & ELSARowledge has staff trained in both ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) and FEIPS (Framework for Enhanced Individual Pastoral Support) to help support childrens pastoral and emotional development.  The attached document explains more about these programmes.



The school recognises the scheme to a well-rounded approach to childrens mental health and wellbeing.  As such we have additional resources in our E-Safety and Junior Road Safety pages of our website.
