What is Wellbeing?
Wellbeing(n): A state of complete physical and mental health that is characterised by high-quality social relationships.
What do we do?
The Wellbeing Action Group is developed to lead and support the school on its journey to a whole school approach to wellbeing.
To do this the group will:
- Set terms of referencethat include; a shared understanding of wellbeing, clearly identified areas of success and need, actions for the school year, agreed dates on which to review and monitor progress which is then fed back to the wider school community.
- Meet regularly– every half term
- Update the Wellbeing Audit
- Develop sub-groups linked to identified areas of development
- Employ creative practices as part of each meeting including; checking in, setting ground rules, using varied and stimulating activities to generate ideas, enabling contributions from everyone and making time to check out.
- Celebrate success and achievementsby updating online scrap books linked to the Pillars of Wellbeing in addition to school-based events such as celebration assemblies, noticeboards, etc.
- Submit progressto Public Health for quality assurance when appropriate
