Ashleigh Primary School and Nursery runs a 'social and emotional' programme called Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies, or PATHS.

Danni Lacey-Scane, assistant headteacher, said: 'It is a whole school approach to learning about and managing our emotions in a positive manner.'

Each class selected a different emotion and then explored it through a relevant artist to inspire them to create their own pieces of art in a range of mediums, including sculpture and graffiti.

On Wednesday Ashleigh Primary will hold a PATHS recruitment event for people across Norfolk to showcase the school's success with the programme.
