Wellbeing Support

Our aim in school is to support students who may be struggling with all kinds of issues. These may be issues which are short term and may be support around resilience but also those with longer-term issues building support about how to help in and out of school.
One strategy we are encouraging is mindfulness and students are going to be receiving a lesson during SPIRIT on mindfulness and will be encouraged to enter a Wellbeing Competition to design a wellbeing activity.
