At Beehive Lane Community Primary School, we recognise the importance of promoting positive mental health and emotional wellbeing. We aim to create an open culture around the discussion of mental health and wellbeing and to empower our pupils to regulate their emotions. We use lots of different strategies to support this including the Zones of Regulation and PSHE curriculum. We have also created a pyramid of support to show you what is on offer to pupils.
Zones of Regulation
Not only is this an integral part of our curriculum, this is also paramount in the day to day running of the school. The children have the zones on display in their classroom and they are referred to regularly. At the beginning of the school year, the children create a toolkit of strategies to use when experiencing each zone. By implementing The Zones of Regulation, we aim to teach our pupils to identify emotions in themselves and others and to provide them with a bank of strategies to help regulate their emotions and improve their wellbeing.
The Zones of Regulation is an initiative to help your child develop skills in the area of self-regulation. It is based around the use of four colours to help children identify how they’re feeling and categorise it based on a colour. As a school, we use characters from the Disney movie ‘Inside Out’ to give a character/face to each of the colours.
