At the heart of all teaching and learning within Paulton Infant School is the belief that wellbeing is of paramount importance. Without secure roots for learning, children are unable to engage in the learning tasks set for them and as a result, their progress and attainment can be limited. However, with a school belief that it is only through the positive promotion of wellbeing and the encouragement for our children to be learners who are happy, safe, empathetic, self-confident and able to make successful relationships that the children within our school are able to make fantastic progress and achieve their full potential at home and at school. To actively promote children’s wellbeing at Paulton Infant School all staff utilise the THRIVE approach, Forest School opportunities and Nurture Group strategies for the individuals in our school.
