Building Resilience Programme

Resilience is a key factor in protecting and promoting good mental health. This whole school programme aims to look at  ten different things that can help support children to develop resilience.

The programme will run over a three year period. Each theme is introduced with a launch assembly and the key messages are followed up in class activities and at follow up assemblies. A parent and carer information guide will be provided for each theme.

How you can help at home:

Each theme has a ‘Talk it Over’ section to encourage you to share some of your life’s learning with your child.  There is also a related ‘Family Activity’ to support learning at home.

In school and at home we will explore the following resilience strategies…
