Social and Emotional Support

At Dovery Academy we commit to promoting social and emotional well-being and responding to mental health problems.

What is social and emotional wellbeing?

The National Children’s Bureau says:

“social and emotional wellbeing refers to a state of positive mental health and wellness. It involves a sense of optimism, confidence, happiness, clarity, vitality, self-worth, achievement, having a meaning and purpose, engagement, having supportive and satisfying relationships with others and understanding oneself and responding effectively to one’s own emotions.”

What are mental health problems?

The National Children’s Bureau says:

"mental health problems refers to a wide range of mental health, emotional and social challenges, difficulties and conditions that can beset both staff and pupils, including stress and burnout, anxiety, depression, attachment difficulties and behavioural problems.”

At Dovery Academy we aim to create resilient children who have a sense of optimism, confident, happiness, clarity, vitality, resilience and self-worth.

We encourage engagement in the world around them and encourage all members of the school community to have supportive and satisfying relationships with each other. We ensure children have a sense of self, and support them to be able to respond effectively to emotions in themselves and others.
