At Ainsdale St John's CE Primary School the children benefit from a range of activities and opportunities that enrich their PSHE learning. Children can access yoga classes and sessions guided by Relaxed Kids, peer massage and various sessions aimed at promoting mindfulness and managing anxiety.
The school has a Bronze Award from Sefton Young Carers to recognise the work being carried out to identify and support young carers within the school. In addition, with the support of local charity RISE, children who are identified as young carers or who have been bereaved of an immediate family member attend weekly peer support groups. They can also access team building and fun activities with children with similar experiences across Sefton.
