Mental Health and Wellbeing at Moor Allerton Hall Primary School

Work to promote pupils' personal development is 'a golden thread' that runs throughout the school. Pupils are self-confident. They are proud to be part of a school community that welcomes and values everyone. They say that this is the 'Moor Allerton Hall Way'. Work to promote mental health is a strength of the school.

Moor Allerton Hall Primary School Intent Statement for Mental Health and Wellbeing

Moral Purpose

At Moor Allerton Hall Primary School we are committed to promoting positive mental health and wellbeing of all children, their families and members of the staff and governors. Our community promotes kindness and respect where we recognise and celebrate diversity. Our children have a voice and are at the centre of all we do.  We have effective procedures and policies ensuring children, staff and families are safe and supported in their wellbeing.  For a child to learn, to achieve and to thrive, they must be in a state of readiness and to have basic needs met. They must feel safe, they must feel valued, they must believe in themselves and have positive role models around them.

The curriculum plays an important role in developing young people’s knowledge about health and wellbeing. Our school intent is to prepare children for the future and a huge part of this is to value themselves and others.

Mental Health Definition

“Mental health is a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”

World Health Organisation, 2018

What supporting Positive Mental Health means to us:


  • Relationships are key to promoting wellbeing in school.
  • Everyone in school shows kindness and respect.
  • The child stays at the centre of every conversation.
  • We are growing a community of inclusive belonging where diversity is recognised and valued.
  • We prioritise those who need our help most, but we promote positive mental health with everyone.
  • We embed a strong PSHCE curriculum throughout school.
  • Children and staff are taught skills to build resilience and manage everyday stressors.
  • We have a highly trained Pastoral Team who lead on evidence-based practice for all our interventions.

We have been  accredited with SILVER for the Carnegie Centre of Excellence for Mental Health in Schools Award. This is a whole school project working with staff, children and parents
