In November last year an anonymous questionnaire was sent out to all parents on Seesaw. Staff and children in school (Years 3,4,5,&6) also completed the questionnaire. By clicking on the buttons below you can see all of the responses.

After analysing the responses from the whole school community an Action Plan was put together, which can be viewed by clicking below.
An assembly on Wednesday 24th April by the School Council launched the 5 Steps to Mental Wellbeing approach that Westmoor are promoting.
Each class had a PSHCE lesson to talk about how they could use the 5 steps to help themselves develop their emotional wellbeing. The School Council designed a poster that can be seen around school. Look at the NHS site below for more details of the 5 steps approach.
