Wellbeing Award

This year we are working towards achieving the Wellbeing Award for Schools. This is an award written by the National Children's Bureau. It supports schools in identifying areas of strength and areas for development. More information...

Pupils, parents and staff completed baseline questionnaires during the autumn term 2018. The analysis of this has informed our action planning for the new year.

Active Playtimes

We have worked hard to make our playtimes really active over the last few months. We know that being active is good for you but we also wanted to increase play provision, encourage problem solving and provide opportunities for children to make new friends. We're having a great time!

Choose to Cope

At Bailiffe Bridge School we run a programme called 'Choose to Cope' to support the emotional well-being of our children. This series of lessons enables children to develop personal resilience in order to rationalise their worries and concentrate on their learning. Recently, we were asked by the national publication 'Teach Primary' to review our 'Choose to Cope' work. We are very proud of this work.

If you think your child would benefit from being part of Choose to Cope or any of our EHWB interventions, please complete the self-referral form below and forward it to and we'll be in touch. Thank you.

Our Wellbeing working group decided at their December 2018 meeting that it would be a good idea to send out a EHWB newsletter each half term. Please use these links to find out more about the work completed in school to enhance the wellbeing of everyone in our school.
