Children must be taught how to think, not what to think

Margaret Mead

At The Mulberry House School, we are committed to supporting children’s personal development and wellbeing.

In the Prep classes, our Mulberry Mindset continues to play a pivotal role in how we support the children’s development. Through curricular and extracurricular activities, we encourage a sense of achievement, self-worth, moral responsibility and mutual respect for others. Our Philosophy and Debating sessions develop a sense of spiritual understanding and encourage the children to develop their critical thinking skills and acceptance of others points of view. In order to support the children’s wellbeing, we offer daily yoga and mindfulness sessions both in and outside of the classroom.

The children are supported in developing a growth mindset and apply this to all challenges they face. Their efforts are awarded each week in assembly where certificates are given out by the Headteacher.

We support the children’s wellbeing through initiatives such as our worry box, the friend stop, our Kindness Council and at regular story times where we introduce the NSPCC’s pants rule and speak about online safety.
