Here at West Park we feel it is important to look after the wellbeing of the children, the staff and the community. We recognise that the pandemic has been difficult for us all and that is why we need to support each other. In school we have weekly PSHE lessons, we encourage children to be as active as possible, we also encourage healthy eating and heathy lifestyles. We want to ensure that children have a healthy body and healthy mind. We feel that it is really important to encourage your child to talk about their feelings daily, this could be a conversation on the way to and from school. We want to know children feel safe and happy in school and at home and therefore it is important we work together. If you feel that your child is feeling upset or worried please do not hesitate to chat with the class teacher. We would also encourage you to use the online worry box on the school web page. Please watch this PowerPoint and click the link here to view more information.
Our new and current scheme we are using for the teaching of PSHE in school is called 1Decision. This scheme follows characters that talk the children through scenarios and gives them time to discuss the choices they have to make. It allows them to see the impact of making the right choices and the wrong choices via short films. If you want to find out more about the scheme view the parent information slides via parent news.
You can also keep up to date with their news by using the link below.

At West Park we promote healthy eating. Our rainbow of healthy foods display in the dinner hall reminds children to eat a range of colours "Colour Fuel". Children are rewarded with stickers at lunch time if they choose and eat healthy options. Children with a healthy packed lunch are also rewarded.
