Social and Emotional Well-Being

In order to support our children's social and emotional mental-health, we use this flowchart as a means of identifying the appropriate support.

Healthy Minds Lincolnshire


Healthy Minds provides emotional wellbeing support for children and young people up to 19 years old.  For children, they provide evidence-based brief interventions. This will be offered as either self-help, workshops, groups or one-to-one sessions. Vulnerable children and young people will be given priority.  for parents/carers, Healthy Minds will offer support and advice as part of your child/young person's sessions. They also offer online workshops and groups.

What is Kooth?


Kooth is an online mental healthcare service which aims to provide mental health service to individuals under the age of 21.  Kooth is different from a lot of other mental healthcare services that are based online in that it allows for a variety of things that the person can do, including talking to a community, talking to a professional, and having an online journal in which they can write.

A superb Healthy Minds assembly by Colleen & Lucy. The children were so engaged & learnt the 5 Steps to Wellbeing. Brilliant, thoughtful discussions & excellent strategies to use when we’re feeling low or need to calm down #skillsforlife 😌

Our well-being group in action! Our children meet together at lunchtime to help develop their confidence through peer support whilst also building relationships.

During well-being lunch club, the children drew around each other, then all labelled different feelings and where they felt them.

Striving to normalise mental health language in our children we focus every week on different feelings with an 'emotion of the week'. Fabulous aides #moodcards 😊 #childrensmentalhealth #socialandemotionalwellbeing

WOW.  This is such a fantastic idea.  To normalise this at such a young age and to also encourage children to actually speak about different levels of emotion.  Seriously well done Spilsby Primary.
