Mental Health Awareness Week

At Knottyash we...


  • Take Mental Health seriously! We want all of our children to feel safe, secure and able to talk about their needs, wants and feelings. 
  • Have a Whole School Approach to Mental Health because, Mental Health is everyone's business! All children and adults have Mental Health. It is only when we talk with others about our feelings that we can learn that it is 'normal' not to feel great all of the time. 
  • Start conversations using the ROAR rainbow as a visual aid to how they are feeling.
  • We have a dedicated Mental Health display in each classroom where children and adults can access the rainbow and other visual tools from the ROAR program. All children will follow the program at their level to learn to communicate their feelings and build resilience.
  • Provide masseuse led peer massage sessions for all classes.
  • Encourage a love of the Great Outdoors and physical activity.
  • Offer a block of Forest School sessions to every class during the academic year.
