Wellbeing Zone

Our SHANARRI characters support the children's understanding of the concept of wellbeing. To achieve optimum wellbeing we need to consider these 8 wellbeing indicators, ensuring we are  - safe, healthy, active, nurtured, achieving, respected, responsible and included. 

As well as SHANARRI the focus at Goldfield is upon emotional resilience. Our Tree of Resilience is home to Resilient Reg and Rosie, who remind our children that we can always 'bounce back' if we have a worry, a problem or make a mistake. Our Squirrels Room is the base for Mrs Sladden, our Mental Health and Wellbeing Leader, who supports children individually and in small groups. She is also available to offer support and guidance to parents as the wellbeing of families within our community in at the centre of our provision.




The TLC (Talk Listen Care) initiative was introduced many years ago and continues to be successful in developing feelings of security and safety, encouraging children to share their feeling. This strategy underpins our Behaviour and Anti-Bullying policies and procedures.



Goldfield's Weekly Well-being

Our Welcome Back to Goldfield Video!

With our focus upon wellbeing, we wanted to let the children know how excited were to welcome them back following the lockdown and help dispel any anxiety. So, in the spirit of our remote learning communications (and utilising newly acquired skills with technology!) we put a video together for the children to watch in the week prior to our return. They could see the full teaching team and take a journey throughout the school building in preparation for their return. We were overwhelmed by the support and wonderful comments we received, thank you!
