Alton School


Welcome to our Wellbeing Page


Here you will find tips and ideas for looking after mental health and wellbeing. As adults, we play an important role in teaching children and young people how to understand and manage their feelings when they grow up. At school, we use the Zones of Regulation programme which helps teach children techniques to identify and help with various emotions.

We make sure that all children know who they can speak to, if they have a problem within or outside school. Posters are displayed around the school, with the names and pictures of key staff they can approach. We also work closely with Place2Be which is available to all children at our school who may wish to use it.


How can you support children at home?

Find time to talk, just the two of you – ‘Check in’ with them while you’re doing things together, so they get used to talking about their feelings.

Play together – Play helps them to be curious, learn new things, solve problems and express feelings without words.

Be a role-model – Show how you cope with difficult feelings and look after yourself.
