We are delighted with our children's wellbeing board in school. Walking passed it, we all get the chance to see, appreciate and celebrate so many wonderful moments and acts of kindness.
Totternhoe Church of England Academy Mental Health and Wellbeing Policy is available below as well as on our staff wellbeing board in the staffroom, which also offers a range of personal and professional advice and support contacts, for encouragement and strength.
In our endeavour to support our children and our families, please explore the following:
The NHS has provided us all with some ways of coping with the stress from the current pandemic below.
The Government has also provided many very useful links to help us all in a range of ways during this time. Click here to help you find exactly what you and your family may need.
We have shared some of these well being strategies with our classes
Why not try some with your family at home too.
Together, we have created a calm, relaxing area for staff to take a moment and reflect.
We now have plans to create a Sensory Reflection Butterfly Garden for all our children to enjoy too. Watch this space to find out how you too can help us work together to achieve an amazing space for all our children to enjoy...
Having a voice contributes to validation and as such our staff, children and parents will be offered the opportunity to share their opinions through surveys which are made available at various times of the year -so watch this space for your turn...
Autumn Term: Staff survey here
Coming soon = Pupil survey here
Coming soon = Parent survey - until available, please feel free to share your suggestions, insights and concerns with the school at any time.
We love to hear from you...

Every person in our academy community has been made in the image of God and is loved unconditionally by God. Everyone is equal and we treat each other with dignity and respect. Our academy is a place where everyone should be able to flourish in a loving and hospitable community. Each person in all their unique difference should be able to thrive, irrespective of physical appearance, gender, race, religion, ethnicity, socio-economic background, academic ability, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity. We are committed to promoting the understanding of the principles and practices of equality – treating all members of our academy community as individuals, according to their needs, with an awareness of our diverse society and appreciating the value of difference. We actively seek to challenge discrimination and we promote an anti-bullying stance which makes clear the unacceptability of racist, disablist and homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying and language. For more information please see our RSHE policy and our Accessibility, Disability policy and Action Plan.
