Wellbeing is integral in enabling children to flourish as contributing members of society who enjoy meaningful and spiritually enriched lives. Our school vision and mission underpins our wellbeing practice and curriculum. Staff recognise the pivotal role they play in fostering the wellbeing of children.
Wellbeing is recognised as our children’s capacity to cope, learn and thrive. Children who have a positive mood and attitude, are resilient and content with who they are and are more engaged and successful learners. Wellbeing is clearly linked to positive learning outcomes for children and families.
Wellbeing in our school includes creating safe, inclusive learning communities, developing a strong sense of connection and belonging through authentic relationships, engaging students in positive learning experiences that enable student voice and providing purposeful and innovative learning experiences.
Social emotional learning is both explicitly taught and woven through all learning and teaching opportunities. Children participate in a wide range of cooperative learning strategies and inquiry based learning to deepen their knowledge and understanding of how to work and relate well to others.
We have a full time wellbeing and learning diversity teacher who is supported by a part time pastoral care worker. Our wellbeing and learning diversity teacher supports children, families and staff across all areas of wellbeing. Our pastoral care worker offers both individual and group support in the area of social emotional learning and wellbeing.
