Health and Wellbeing
At Dulverton, we set our reputation on the strength of our pastoral care. Maintaining the health and well-being of our pupils is extremely important to us.
Our staff work with parents and guardians and welcome active support and involvement. Good work habits, co-operation and tolerance create the happy, family atmosphere for which the school is known.
It has been wonderful to welcome the children back to school and hear the chatter and laughter fill the halls once again. However, we recognise that each child’s experience of lockdown will have been very different and, for some children, returning to school can be an anxious time.
In order to help support pupils with their return to the classroom, the whole school read ‘Here we are’ by Oliver Jeffers to help encourage a sense of community across the entire school, to reflect on the last few months and also help Dulverton look forward to the future in a positive way.
Each child and member of staff has been given their own jigsaw piece which they decorated with what lockdown meant to them. They then put their jigsaw puzzle together to create the ‘The Story of Lockdown’ for their class.
Each class has a Feelings Wall in order to help encourage the children to discuss their emotions and help them to understand why they may be feeling this way.
