HEALTH AND WELLBEING
‘Learning through health and wellbeing promotes confidence, independent thinking and positive attitudes and dispositions.’
Building the Curriculum 1
In Support for Pupils, we offer a number of Health and Wellbeing interventions to support social and emotional development, educational outcomes and wellbeing for young people. These social and emotional interventions help build resilience and promote wellbeing. They are individualised to focus on self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision making, and strategies to support anxiety.
Targeted interventions for Health & Wellbeing include:
- Health & Wellbeing small groups. Topics covered include team building, problem solving, planning activities for others, mental health and wellbeing. Our Therapet Dogs also support these programmes.
- Connections Group
Is a resource to support social development and social skills.
- Exam Anxiety are short-term interventions supporting pupils who suffer from extreme anxiety around exams. We explore ways of challenging negative thoughts, promoting positive thinking, relaxation, and revision techniques.
Our interventions are underpinned by nurture principles and training.
What is nurture?
The concept of nurture highlights the importance of social environments – who you’re with, and its significant influence on social emotional skills, wellbeing and behaviour.
The nurturing approach offers a range of opportunities to develop the social and emotional skills to do well at school and with peers, develop their resilience and their capacity to deal more confidently with the social situations.
