Teaching SEMH skills has the potential to improve academic outcomes, keeps pupils safe and improves their mental well-being. There is an increasing focus on the roles of schools in meeting the SEMH needs of their pupils, and this is something of upmost importance to us at Poplars Farm Primary School. We have found that students who have accessed SEMH support within school have improved their self-esteem and achieved personal goals and outcomes, this has made a huge difference in their overall well-being and ability to engage in education.

All teaching which takes place is delivered at an age-appropriate level including any content which is used. We believe that allowing children to practice a range of skills, including talking about their feelings, rather than simply developing a theoretical understanding of SEMH, equips our children with the language that they need to be able to talk about their own mental health and that of others. At Poplars Farm Primary School all of our children are taught a well-balanced and inclusive PSHE curriculum and are supported by our GROW values, policies and procedures which creates a warm, welcoming safe environment for our children to engage, learn and grow.


Sometimes, pupils may need some extra support with their SEMH. This can be for many reasons both temporary and long term.

Our belief is that every child has the potential to learn, develop, and understand how they learn and the factors which could affect this. We recognise that all children and young people need a solid foundation of positive mental health to benefit fully from all of the opportunities that are available to them.
