Mental Health and Wellbeing

My Happy Mind

Spaldwick Primary School has introduced a programme to all year groups called, My Happy Mind. My Happy Mind helps children to understand how their brain works and supports them to develop positive skills and habits to use every day to help their mental health and wellbeing.

The programme teaches five modules to the children, Meet the Brain, Celebrate, Appreciate, Relate, and Engage. Each module allows the children to spend time reflecting on what they have learned in their personal journal. The children learn how to develop healthy habits to use at school or at home, such as happy breathing, gratitude and celebrating strengths in themselves and others.

We have chosen happiness heroes from Years 4 and 5, to promote the wonderful learning taking place in classes during break and lunchtime. They also support children who might need a playground buddy.
