Wellbeing Award for Schools
This year we are striving to achieve the Wellbeing Award for Schools. Supporting wellbeing and good mental health has long been a priority at St Matthew's and this process will help us to evaluate and improve what we do. Parents, pupils and staff will receive a questionnaire to complete in the next few weeks to help us assess what more could be done.
Triple P - Positive Parenting Programme
Triple P is one of the world's most effective parenting programmes. It gives parents the skills they need to raise confident, healthy children, and to build stronger family relationships. It also helps parents manage misbehaviour and prevent problems occuring in the first place. With more than 30 years of ongoing research, Triple P has been scientifically trialled with thousands of families around the world, and has been successful for most families within a wide range of cultures, countries and situations. Triple P has helped more than 4 million children and their families in 25 countries worldwide.
If you are interested in joining the programme, please speak to our Family Support Worker.
