Wellbeing Award




In July 2023, Farne primary secured the Well Being Award for work with staff and pupil well-being. in conjunction with National Children’s Bureau (NCB) and Optimus Education.


The award is based on our curriculum offer with good emotional wellbeing with the aim for mental health, to be at the heart of the culture and ethos of Farne.


Within Farne we strive to ensure pupils, with the support of their teachers, can build confidence and flourish, this in turn will improved academic outcomes. This is a whole school approach, ensure we all fully committed promoting the emotional wellbeing and mental health of pupils and staff.


At Farne we recognise the impact of COVID-related restrictions on the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children, their families and school staff. Bereavement, social isolation, the loss of opportunities for staff to spot emerging needs in pupils, the suspension of school-based services and the reluctance of children, families and staff to seek medical help during lockdown have all contributed to both acute and longer term challenges to emotional wellbeing and mental health.  


In June 2023, Farne Primary were awarded with our Heritage Award, for our curriculum work with History. This included our extensive history curriculum, visits and visitors into school and also our curriculum progression in this subject.


The award is recognised by the DfE (Department for Education) and we are very pleased we have received this recognition.

In June 2022, Farne Primary received the PSQM, for our work in Science across our curriculum. Mrs Bennison our science subject leader, also gave staff professional development and invited Newcastle University into school to upskill staff skills.
