Well-being

The emotional, health and well-being of children and young people is as important as their physical health and wellbeing.

Problems range from short spells of depression or anxiety through to severe and persistent conditions that can isolate, disrupt and frighten those who experience them. These problems can result in lower educational attainment, poor physical health, poor social relationships, school exclusion and limited future employment prospects as well as behaviours such as smoking, using drugs and drinking alcohol. The impact of improving emotional wellbeing is seen at an individual and family level.

As a means of addressing emotional, health and well-being our school has registered for the Well-being Award for Schools (WAS) which is in partnership with the National Children’s Bureau. Some of our articles regarding well-being are featured below.
