Wellbeing at Croft

Children thrive when they are allowed to get involved in making decisions

and are given space to ask questions about things that concern them.

They learn to communicate well and believe in themselves.

We all know exercise is good for our bodies, but it can be good for our minds too!

Connections support and enrich us every day.

We raise money for our school community

and we are also getting to know people in our local community.

Having a class reward system unites students in their motivation to work hard and excel.


Weekly certificates are thoughtfully considered and based on an individual's

personal growth, character, and achievements.

Evidence shows that helping others is actually beneficial for our own mental health and wellbeing, too.

It can help reduce stress, improve our emotional wellbeing and even benefit our physical health.

By giving our time to friends, classmates and our community, we can help ourselves at the same time!

Freely chosen play is when a child decides and controls their play following their own instincts, imagination and interests.

They play without being led by adults.

There’s no right or wrong way to play.

Freely chosen play improves children’s health, wellbeing and development.
