Well-Being

We are currently working towards achieving the Wellbeing Award for Schools.

Developed in partnership with the National Children’s Bureau (NCB), the Wellbeing Award for Schools is intended to help schools prepare and equip themselves to promote emotional wellbeing and positive mental health across the whole-school community. NCB’s vision is an education system where good emotional wellbeing and mental health are at the heart of the culture and ethos of all schools, so that pupils, with the support of their teachers, can build confidence and flourish. Evidence shows us that wellbeing is of central importance to learning and attainment, with high levels of wellbeing associated with improved academic outcomes. Conversely, pupils who have mental health problems are more likely to have academic difficulties at school and experience social disadvantage later in adult life.

 SLEEP

Are you and your children getting enough sleep?

As we learned during our recent wellbeing day, getting the right amount of sleep is crucial for our health and wellbeing. The fantastic Healthy Child Team have been in school teaching our children about the impact of poor sleep and making suggestions about how to improve the sleep we get.

We have uploaded some very helpful information below for parents to read,  along with a sleep diary for our children to complete so you can explore how sleep patterns impact on wellbeing day to day.

There are also lots of handy tips for grown ups too!
