Wellbeing promotion is a fundamental focus in our school and we are committed to promoting positive wellbeing throughout our school community. We understand the importance of maintaining a positive wellbeing and the role it plays in creating an environment where all are healthy, happy and achieve their best. Wellbeing has been our School Self Evaluation focus for the past three years and as such, wellbeing promotion is at ‘the core of the ethos of our school’ and we endeavor to embed whole school practices which promote a culture of wellbeing.

Each month we now have a wellbeing focus in school. The student council helps promote our theme each month, through whole school announcements  & class visits.

Our focus in April was Mindful Minutes. Some of the activities & exercises we concentrated on are here. We looked at a different mindful minute each week as a whole school. 

May’s focus was gratitude; we worked on a daily gratitude practice, gratitude yoga, guided meditations for gratitude and gratitude scavenger hunts. Supportive document here.

For the month of June we are concentrating on kindness. We are practising kindness to ourselves through kind self-talk & affirmations and acts of kindness towards others. The Weaving Wellbeing programme highlights kindness as a character strength and acts of kindness as an evidence-based intervention to cultivate positive emotions.

Wellbeing Week 2022

Here at GETNS, we endeavour to promote mental health in the classroom, to teach children about wellbeing and to instil positive attitudes towards mental health in our pupils. While well-being activities are integrated into the school day throughout the year, we are taking some extra time to highlight the importance of our wellbeing for the week. There is a different theme each day, with some corresponding homework activities. We hope everyone enjoys the week and uses this opportunity to do some wellbeing activities together as a family.

Gratitude is all about being thankful and focusing on the good around us. When we learn to be thankful for everything and have an attitude of gratitude, we feel more positive, peaceful and happy each and every day. This Gratitude Scavenger Hunt is perfect for children and adults to start finding little things to be thankful for.
