The term “wellbeing” can be used to describe our complete health, including our physical, mental and emotional health. When we have good levels of wellbeing we feel that life is in balance and that we can generally cope well. We feel motivated and engaged and are able to show resilience and “bounce back” from life’s challenges.
Just like physical health, we all have mental/emotional health; there will be times when our mental health may not be as good as it could be; when this happens, some emotions we may feel are feeling down, sad, quiet, upset, angry, frustrated.
But like physical health, you can also do things to help look after your mental health. It is really important to keep regular routines wherever possible, such as, attending school and lessons as well as having some set times to do various activities throughout your week.
Our school offers a range of services to help students develop positive mental health and wellbeing and support those experiencing mental health issues. The pastoral team support positive mental health and wellbeing across school.
