Pupil Wellbeing



At Wilbury Junior School we are committed to promoting and supporting positive mental health and emotional wellbeing of our whole school community.  We recognise that mental health and emotional wellbeing is just as important to our lives as physical health.

Growth Mindset


At Wilbury, we are passionate about supporting our pupils to maintain a sense of wellbeing in these difficult times. We also want to provided lasting and transferable skills that would impact our pupil’s mental health not just now but in their future.


We have introduced lessons on developing a ‘Growth Mindset.’ Through discussion and activities, the children are developing resilience and confidence, allowing them to face setbacks and overcome challenges in a positive and insightful way. They are learning to embrace their mistakes and take risks. Every week we celebrate a pupil from each class, that has been a champion of our Growth Mindset values. These are: Courage, Resilience, Confidence, Organisation, Respect and Tolerance.


Before Easter, the children received daily ‘Growth Mindset’ lessons to support their transition back to school. They will continue to use this approach throughout their schooling, embedded in all curriculum areas.


This half term we gave every child in the school a packet of seeds,

to remind us to grow our brain, develop our skills and reach for the sky

"Sometimes I'm a bit shy, so I am working on being more confident. I challenge myself to play with different people on the playground and put my hand up more in my lessons." Year 6 pupil
