We are currently looking very carefully at wellbeing in the school and have been actively promoting mindfulness and more importantly ‘kindfulness’ in our pupils though a number of practices and across a number of curriculum areas. We aim to build resilience and promote ‘right thinking – right action’ critical thinking skills in our pupils. We recently created a wellness room in the school and hope to utilise this for wellness breaks for pupils in need of this space. We hope to devise a policy in relation to this in the near future in collaboration with our Parent body and our student council. In additon to the existing SPHE curriculum we are also implementing the following well-being initiatives:
We created a wellness space in March 2020 and look forward to making great use of this space.
If you have any concerns around your child's wellness please don't ever hesitate to contact us in confidence.
We have rolled out this mental health scheme across the whole school and it is truly a wonderful resource for our pupils and staff.
We have devised our own mental health programme for our junior classes, linking with relevant SPHE lessons, and have linked the Weaving Wellbeing programme into our SPHE classes up through the school very successfully.
We have a dedicated wellness policy to care for our school community - pupils, parents and staff insofar as we can. Wellness, mindfulness and kindness permeates our school ethos, holistic education and practices.
Classes engage in daily or regular (Mon,Wed,Fri) meditation as appropriate to their age and stage of development. We aspire to nurture self-awareness, self-esteem, self-acceptance, self-efficacy and enable our pupils to be truly present. We have found that the benefits of regular, teacher led and teacher modelled meditation are manifold, not least imporved self-regulation, resilience and concentration.
