Wellbeing at St Joseph's

At St Joseph's, we want children to be able to REACH in all that they do and be the best that they can be.  We understand that from time to time children and families need help to make sure that they stay mentally well.
If you would like to know more about how we can support children in school please take a moment to read our Pupil's Mental Health and Wellbeing Policy.

A Poem for our wonderful children who have accomplished so much - We are so very proud of each and every one of you
You might think you need to be a superhero to wear a big, shiny cape,
Tied tightly around your shoulders sitting proudly on your nape,
Have fantastic superpowers that will let you fly high,
With such inner strength that you should never feel the need to cry.
But you have been our little heroes whilst spending so much time at home,
Loved ones who have been shielding have known that they are not alone,
With your thoughtfulness and kindness they have felt how much you care,
How perfectly wonderful that our reward will be time to share.
So, let your cape of kindness that has kept your loved one’s safe,
Wrap around you tightly and comfort you in our place,
Let us help you on your journey whilst you continue to fly high,
And be your absolutely lovely self as you REACH up towards the sky.
Wellness Prayer
Dear Lord,
I pray that you will continue to develop in me the graces that create emotional wellness,
Help me care for my body and mind to keep it strong,
Guide me to use and express my emotions in appropriate and healthy ways,
And prevent me from acting before I think,
