Emotional Well-being, Values and Emotion Coaching
A Whole School Approach:
We have always been very focused on the need to help children develop their self-awareness and their ability to self- regulate their emotions. At Haverigg School we view all challenges, playtime fallouts, disagreements as learning opportunities. As a whole staff we emotion coach children through these situations by acknowledging their emotions, naming and validating them, before working with each child to problem solve in order for them to move forward and learn from each experience.
Years 3,4,5 and 6 have all completed sessions on "my amazing emotional brain" to help them develop an understanding of what happens in their brains when they are faced with sudden and strong emotions. Children need to have an understanding of what happens in their brains during high emotions and know what strategies to help them to calm and re-gain control. It is a fascinating area of learning and one that we will continue to build on. Below are some of the diagram we have used to help explain what happens in our brains when we 'flip our lids'
Developing Emotional Resilience and Wellbeing
Each half term we focus in a different whole school value to help children realise the importance of: tolerance, respect, courtesy, kindness, honesty (to name just a few). Click on the links below to see examples of our Values posters that are displayed around school.We also strive to promote positive behaviour through the way we manage behaviour in school. Our positive behaviour management policy is also accessible below.

We weave our values into all we do at Haverigg:
- House Points
- PE and Sport
- Celebrating Creativity and Difference
- Providing an active, fun-filled curriculum that promotes appropriate risktaking, encourages challenge and develops a growth mindset
We aim to teach the children at Haverigg Primary School how to behave well and to be considerate and self-disciplined individuals.
We highlight different values throughout the year to provide children with the language and understanding to maintain these values.
