What is wellbeing?
Wellbeing is 'feeling good and functioning well'. We learn best, teach best and parent best when we have a sense of wellbeing. Now, more than ever, developing a sense of wellbeing is essential, and having access to a range of strategies and ideas to help your own wellbeing, and the wellbeing of your family is vital. We aim to share ideas and links on this page to help you. If you need further support or would like more information then please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Waller or Mrs Derbidge at school.
We also have a separate wellbeing page for your children to access, to be taken to the page click the link.
