Prioritising Wellbeing: Nurturing the Heart of Saxton School


At Saxton Primary School, the holistic development and emotional wellbeing of our pupils are at the heart of everything we do. We understand that a nurturing, supportive, and positive environment plays a pivotal role in a child’s educational journey. Our commitment to wellbeing extends beyond the classroom and encompasses every aspect of our school life.

The Importance of Wellbeing

We firmly believe that a child’s wellbeing is a critical foundation for academic success. When children feel safe, happy, and valued, they are more receptive to learning. We foster an environment where children can flourish, not only academically but also emotionally, spiritually and socially.

Supporting Emotional Health

Our dedicated team of staff is attuned to the emotional needs of our pupils. We provide a space where children feel comfortable expressing their feelings, knowing that they will be listened to and supported. Open communication is encouraged, and we actively seek to provide guidance when challenges arise.

Creating a Sense of Belonging

Saxton School is more than an educational institution; it’s a community. We cultivate a sense of belonging, fostering a supportive network of pupils, teachers, and parents. By building connections, we ensure that every child feels valued and respected.

Developing Resilience

We believe that teaching children to overcome challenges is vital for their personal growth. Our students learn how to bounce back from setbacks, embrace change, and develop resilience. These life skills are essential for navigating the complexities of the world.

Promoting Positive Mental Health

We actively promote positive mental health by providing tools and strategies for coping with stress, anxiety, and other emotions. Children learn to understand and manage their feelings, helping them develop a strong foundation for good mental health.

Encouraging a Balanced Lifestyle

A balanced lifestyle is fundamental to wellbeing. We emphasise the importance of physical activity, a healthy diet, and adequate rest. These habits contribute to our students’ overall sense of wellbeing.

Building Confidence and Self-Esteem

We believe that every child has unique talents and strengths. Our approach is to encourage self-discovery and celebrate individuality. When children feel confident in their abilities, they are more likely to tackle challenges with enthusiasm.

Partnership with Parents

We recognise the crucial role that parents play in nurturing a child’s wellbeing. We actively involve parents in their child’s education and wellbeing, fostering a strong partnership that supports each child’s journey.

Happiness is Learning

We are dedicated to making learning a joyful experience. When children are excited about their education, they are more likely to thrive academically. Our curriculum is designed to engage, inspire, and ignite a passion for learning.

A Lifelong Commitment

We don’t just focus on the wellbeing of our students during their time at Saxton School; we instil values, habits, and skills that will serve them throughout their lives. Our aim is to nurture confident, compassionate, and resilient individuals who go on to make a positive impact on the world.

At Saxton School, we are more than educators; we are wellbeing advocates. Our commitment to nurturing the heart and soul of our students is unwavering. Together, we create a community where every child is supported, valued, and empowered to flourish. We believe that wellbeing is the cornerstone of a successful and fulfilling educational journey, and we prioritise it with dedication and care.
