Well Being Award

We are working towards achieving the Well Being Award. The Well Being Award aims to promote positive social and emotional wellbeing, mental health and wellness for pupils and staff in your school.

 

We have been encouraging all our staff and children to think about the five ways to well being.

  1. Connect… With the people around you. With family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. At home, work, school or in your local community. Talk and listen, be present. Think of these as the cornerstones of your life and invest time in developing them. Building these connections will support and enrich you every day.

 

  1. Be Active… Go for a walk or run. Step outside. Cycle. Play a game. Garden. Dance. Move your mood. Exercising makes you feel good. Most importantly, discover a physical activity you enjoy and that suits your level of mobility and fitness.

 

  1. Take Notice… Be curious. Catch sight of the beautiful. Remark on the unusual. Notice the changing seasons. Savour the moment, whether you are walking to work, eating lunch or talking to friends. Be aware of the world around you and what you are feeling. Reflecting on your experiences will help you appreciate what matters to you.

 

  1. Give … Do something nice for a friend, or a stranger. Thank someone. Smile. Volunteer your time. Join a community group. Raise money or donate clothes to a charity. Look out, as well as in. Seeing yourself, and your happiness, linked to the wider community, can be incredibly rewarding and creates connections with the people around you.

 

  1. Keep Learning… Try something new. Rediscover an old interest. Sign up for that course. Take on a different responsibility at work. Fix a bike. Learn to play an instrument or how to cook your favourite food. Set a challenge you enjoy achieving. Learning new things will make you more confident as well as being fun.

 

As a family, you might like to make a plan for how you are going to support each others well being. You may find this form helpful.
