Welcome to

Sutton Valence Primary School



At Sutton Valence Primary School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of pupils and staff. We believe that as well as supporting children to be the best they can be academically, it is even more important to support children to be the best they can be both socially and personally. We consider wellbeing to be central to positive learning outcomes and a healthy and happy school experience. Therefore, we embed emotional and behavioural wellbeing and positive relationships throughout school life. This is achieved through various experiences and opportunities such as PSHE, assemblies, circle time, worry boxes and our hugely successful wellbeing weeks.

Through this page you will find examples and information about wellbeing in Sutton Valence Primary School as well as some websites and documents you may find useful.

What Went Well Displays

 At the end of each week to promote Wellbeing every class explores “What went well”. There is good research behind it as a valid way to improve wellbeing, to make you feel better about yourself and the world. It’s a form of positive thinking. It is a very specific exercise to recognize and acknowledge three things that went well this week – even if some other things went badly. As part of this we explore what character strengths were involved in these good things such as, curiosity, appreciation, creativity, humour or kindness. 


A random act of kindness is a non-premeditated, inconsistent action designed to offer kindness towards the outside world. Please use the blog below to record any acts of kindness that either you have done or you have seen being done. Below are some ideas to get you going.


Below are some pictures of the Kindness displays being created around school to promote and encourage children to complete random acts of kindness to each other. Please click on the images to enlarge them.
