Well-Being at The Weald

Welcome to The Weald's Well-Being website. We hope we can give you some general information about where to go for help and support, whether you are a student, a parent or carer, a member of staff, a governor, or indeed anyone in our school community.

We are a school that seeks to look after our well-being, both physical and emotional. We aim to focus on positive ways of maintaining and boosting healthy and positive living, whilst always recognising that everyone needs support at times.

We also aim to remove any stigma attached to mental or emotional ill-health. We think that in exactly the same way, our physical health changes and fluctuates, so do our moods and emotions. Sometimes these changes may seem beyond our control and we need external help.

If you need someone to talk to urgently about any difficulties you are experiencing, please do the following:

  • Students - email help@theweald.org.uk and someone will speak to you privately within 24 hours

  • Staff - contact 'Time to Talk' on 01444 251084 between 9am-5pm on weekdays

  • Parents/Carers - if you are concerned about your child, please contact your child's tutor in the first instance. Emails can be found on our school website www.theweald.org.uk under 'Contact Us'. In more serious circumstances, please contact your child's Head of House.

BBC Sounds has a wealth of podcasts related to well-being. Check it out here.
