Wellbeing

Welcome to our school well-being page.

A feeling of positive emotional well-being contributes to a healthy lifestyle as much as exercise or a well-balanced diet. Understanding what constitutes good mental health and developing positive well-being supports children to recognise and acknowledge a range of emotions and to become resilient when faced with life’s challenges.

We hope you and your children will find the information, activities and resources helpful. Many of the suggested relaxation and mindfulness activities are ones that we use in school and are activities we know the children enjoy.
