Staff Wellbeing

We all know that a workplace with a great culture is one that everyone wants to be a part of. A happy and supportive workplace contributes towards the wellbeing of those that work there which is vital in this day and age. It is important that staff are able to work together and feel happy in order to be an educational team that are fun to be around and provide exciting school experiences for pupils. There are times in the school year which place more demands on staff than others, so we are constantly looking for fresh ways to show staff appreciation and promote positive wellbeing. These are a few fun times we've had to help promote wellbeing:

World Sleep Day - Pyjama Day

World Sleep Day is a day to recognise and raise awareness of the importance of sleep. We celebrated World Sleep Day by wearing pyjamas for the day and the Wellbeing Ambassadors taught their classes (and parents and carers) lots of interesting facts about sleep and the importance of sleep.

Wellbeing Room

We are extremely fortunate to be able to create and provide a wellbeing room for our pupils, staff and parents. Pupils are able to access this room through group interventions, one-to-one support, collaborative work with outside agencies and drop-in sessions at lunchtime. The room is full of comfortable furniture, sensory items, books and resources which can be used when talking. The wellbeing room allows us to provide a safe, calm and friendly area for all as we continue to build and strengthen our whole school approach to wellbeing and mental health.
