Zones of Regulation

As part of our Whole School Approach to Mental Health and Wellbeing, we have introduced The Zones of Regulation to teach children about emotional regulation and support them at times of high stress and to manage their sensory needs.


What are the Zones?

The Zones of Regulation is a systematic, cognitive behavioral approach used to teach self-regulation by categorising all the different ways we feel and states of alertness we experience into four colored zones.  The Zones framework provides strategies to teach students to become more aware of and independent in controlling their emotions and impulses, manage their sensory needs, and improve their ability to problem solve conflicts.
