Welcome to Lessness Heath’s newly installed Wellbeing page, our hope is to share up to date information with you around the schools approaches in supporting wellbeing and mental health for all of our pupils, parents and staff.
Lessness Wellbeing Vision Statement
At Lessness Heath we commit to making it our mission to promote resilience and positive wellbeing for all our pupils and staff. We understand wellbeing as state of being comfortable, healthy and happy. We will drive the message forward, to ensure that mental health is “everyone’s business” across the whole school community. We will strive to create an environment, which has a whole school approach, in providing excellent mental health support, understanding and intervention. We will put Wellbeing at the heart of our school to ensure successful learning and commit to our policies reflecting this.
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.
