Wellbeing

As you are aware, we place wellbeing and mental health at the heart of everything we do at Meadowdale and look to regularly gain feedback from all members of our community to ensure we support everyone.  Northumberland County Council are currently looking into where to put funding to best support the wellbeing and mental health of pupils and parents across the county. As this last year has presented many new challenges, this has never been more important. Please click on the link below to complete a short questionnaire to ensure that funding is allocated to the correct resources and services for all members of our community.
 
  • The questionnaires are written in Microsoft Forms and will be available for use between 12th – 26th April 2021.
  • The data captured from them will be collated and analysed by members of the ‘Be You’ team and the outcomes shared via a summary document.
  • As you may already know, we have captured staff voice via the HIVE meetings, which will be factored into our final analysis.

Parents / carers

Pupils / primary

At Meadowdale Primary, we understand the need for everyone in our school to have a healthy lifestyle. This helps pupils and staff to do their best and build on their achievements. We actively promote physical and emotional health, and aim to equip pupils with the understanding and skills they need to make informed decisions about their health, both now and in the future. By championing healthy eating, healthy lifestyles alongside and emotional health and wellbeing, we are aiming to equip pupils with the resilience and skills to meet the challenges of learning and life positively and successfully.

Wellbeing Award

Meadowdale Primary are proud to announce that they have been awarded their Wellbeing Award for Schools after completing an accreditation programme celebrating the Wellbeing of their staff, pupils and wider school community.

Together we have created a great foundation in securing positive wellbeing and positive mental health for our school community and are looking forward to continuing this journey together.

We aim to:

  • Show our commitment to promoting mental health as part of school life
  • Improve the emotional wellbeing of our whole school community (pupils, parents and staff)
  • Ensure mental health problems are identified early and appropriate support provided
  • Offer provision and interventions that matches the needs of its pupils and staff
  • Engage the whole school community in the importance of mental health awareness
  • Capture the views of parents, pupils and teachers on mental health issues
