Wellbeing

As a school we feel our pupil's wellbeing is paramount in them be able to access quality learning opportunities. In school we regularly use a range of approaches; assembles, Religious Education lessons and PHSE (Physical, Health, Social and Emotional) lessons to explore and develop this.

During the current time, with lockdowns, self isolation, illness and bereavements, we know that families are having to meet this challenge. through regular communications and the activities offered by school we are trying to help children and their families. In addition to this below are some other organisations who can help support parents and children during these difficult times.

Supporting Parents Helpfinder (Young Minds)

Times are tough for many people right now. Parents find themselves pulled in many different direction and children may be struggling being in the house for so much longer than usual.

A mixture of concern about covid, work from home and children at home, along with a possible financial impact make for a stressful household.

Young Minds have created a useful 'Supporting Parents Helpfinder'. By answering six questions, parents can find out how to support their child's mental health during the pandemic (and beyond).

Screen Savers: Looking after your eyes, body and mind when using screens (Beacon House)

We are spending more time online than ever before, possibly sitting and working with poor posture as we use makeshift desks and chairs. There is a tendency to take fewer breaks and less exercise and this is affecting our physical well-being.

Beacon House the specialist, therapeutic service for young people, families and adults has produced a series of six posters outlining ways to keep safe and alert when working at home, whether children or adults.
