Motion by Councillor Laidlaw - Thistle Foundation Children's Wellbeing Project

Motion by Councillor Laidlaw – Thistle Foundation Children’s Wellbeing Project

“Committee notes:

1)       The success of the Children’s Wellbeing Projects piloted by the Thistle Foundation - the Craigmillar based charity supporting the well-being of individuals with long-term conditions - that has supported children at Brunstane and Castleview Primary Schools to better manage their worries, cope with difficult emotions and best respond to change.

2)       That following a pilot in 2018, the 2018/19 project extended the work from a programme of six standalone sessions to working with children across the school year, with children at Castleview aged between 8-10 years and those at Brunstane 6-8 years.

Committee recognises:

1)       That the schools involved have an above average number of children with additional support needs and catchments that fall within SIMD areas 1 and 2.

2)       That the best way to prevent Adverse Childhood Experiences is through preventative action with Health and Wellbeing with the project supporting the requirement in the Curriculum for Excellence to support ‘mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing’.

Committee asks:

1)       Officers to review the results of the projects to date and assess how these principles and partnership working could be applied in other schools across the North East and beyond.”
