Wellbeing

‘School years are key to developing social and emotional skills, knowledge and behaviours. This period sets a pattern for how a young person will manage their own mental health and wellbeing into adulthood. Notably, half of all lifetime cases of diagnosable mental health problems begin before the age of 14.

At school we focus on the 5 ways to wellbeing, identified by ‘Mind’ - the mental health charity. We have regular assemblies, PSHE lessons and circle time designed to support our children's wellbeing.


The 5 ways to wellbeing:

Connect - There is strong evidence that indicates that feeling close to, and valued by, other people is a fundamental human need and one that contributes to functioning well in the world.

Be active - Regular physical activity is associated with lower rates of depression and anxiety across all age groups.

Take notice - Reminding yourself to ‘take notice’ can strengthen and broaden awareness. Take some time to enjoy the moment and the environment around you.

Learn - Continued learning through life enhances self-esteem and encourages social interaction and a more active life.

Give - Participation in social and community life has attracted a lot of attention in the field of wellbeing research. Individuals who report a greater interest in helping others are more likely to rate themselves as happy.

We have listed some resources, websites and activity ideas you can use at home to develop your child’s wellbeing.
