WAS (Wellbeing Award for Schools) Update
It is being noticed around the school environment how important the power of conversation is and how pupils are starting to open up and share ideas around wellbeing and mental health – it’s the same as physical health and that good conversations can really make such a difference.
Evidence suggests that a small improvement in wellbeing can help to decrease some mental health problems and also help people to flourish, therefore Lessness Heath is rolling out the 5 ways to wellbeing project, this sets out 5 actions to improve personal wellbeing:
- be active
- take notice
- keep learning
Pupils will have the opportunity to learn and embrace these 5 ways to enhance their wellbeing throughout the school environment and this will be embedded into their learning in PSHE.
Parents who attend the FAMILY MATTERS Programme will also be gaining learning and skills around these 5 ways to wellbeing and will be passing these values into their family homes.
