Together, we grow, thrive and achieve


Mental Health & Wellbeing at Littlebourne


“At Littlebourne, we foster a nurturing, inclusive school community. Following the example of Jesus, we act with compassion, to look outwards to serve our neighbour. We empower all to be lifelong, respectful learners who flourish under God’s guidance. Through our aspirational creative curriculum, we grow and thrive together.”


Littlebourne CE Primary school is committed to creating a nurturing and inclusive community for all.


We believe that our pupils’ whole development, including their social and emotional development, is essential for them to learn and thrive at school.


We are currently participating in a Nurture programme in collaboration with Nurture UK which extends to all members of our school community. We invest in our staff wellbeing to ensure they are able to continue to provide the safe nurturing and engaging learning environments we pride ourselves on.


We are fully committed to supporting the positive mental health and wellbeing of our whole school community (students, staff, parents and carers) and recognise and value that mental health and emotional wellbeing is just as important to our lives physical health. Wellbeing underpins our ethos and as a result we “nourish, nurture, challenge and confront, extend and enlarge the educational and life experiences of our children” (Andrew Cowley, 2021:10).


Our approach to mental health & wellbeing strengthens and supports the Christian identity of our school; reaffirming our vision and associated values of Respect, Compassion, Koinonia, Courage, Hope; celebrating the valuable role that each and every child has to play in their community now and in the future as adults.
