We are delighted to be working in partnership with CAMHS as part of Healthy Minds, a school based project designed to support the emotional health and well being of all children at Ecclesall Primary School. The project puts emotional resilience at the heart of children’s health and well being and recognises its impact on learning, attainment and behaviour.
As a school we have put lots of things in place to support our children and our Healthy Minds Champions help us to find out more about emotional well being at our school. We have conducted 2 pupil surveys and the information we have gathered from these surveys help us plan to further improve our provision.
We have lots of information that you might find useful to support your child’s emotional well being. Click below for more information.

Sensory Processing Difficulties
Some children with a neurodisability also have sensory processing difficulties. We know that most children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will have sensory processing difficulties associated with their diagnosis. These children might be too sensitive to certain sensations such as loud noises, smells, the feel of their clothes or another person’s touch. They might actively try to avoid these sensations through certain behaviours.
Here are some Sensory Top Tips from Ryegate which is part of the Sheffield Children’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
