Meet Mrs Ashworth

  

 

Hello, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Mrs Ashworth and my role within Scholar Green Primary School is Emotional well-being Mentor. I work with pupils  on a one-to-one basis or in  group sessions and have daily ‘check-ins’ with a number of pupils. I am available to all pupils within Scholar Green who sometimes just need to sit and chat. This term I have a well-being after school club where we have time to talk, discuss feelings, meditate, mindfulness colouring projects and we will be having a go at yoga too! The children really enjoyed the club and many came to tell me in person.

Please look out for my Well-being Newsletter which will be available on this page every term.

I am passionate about my role within Scholar Green Primary School and the emotional health and well-being of the pupils, staff and parents.

Hope you like my portrait, drawn by a pupil. I love it!

 

 

At Scholar Green Primary School, we aim to promote positive Mental Health for every member of our school community including, staff, pupils and families.  We pursue this aim using both universal, whole school approaches and specialised, targeted approaches aimed at vulnerable pupils. 

In addition to promoting emotional resilience and positive mental health, we aim to recognise and respond to mental ill health. By developing and implementing practical, relevant and effective mental health policies and procedures we can promote a safe and stable environment for pupils affected both directly and indirectly by mental ill health. 

Each pupil and their well- being is unique and is approached in this way depending on the situation.

  • In some circumstances just talking and listening is required.
  • Others may benefit from a more structured programme.

 

Mrs Ashworth is available at all times for pupils/ staff and parents.

 

Here at Scholar Green Primary we are working towards The AcSEED Award. This is a recognised award and ensures that wellbeing initiatives are well structured and supported and that the school promotes a whole school approach to emotional well being and mental health support.
