Wellbeing

How we promote wellbeing in the school community.

We launched this wellbeing page on our website to support our school community during the COVID-19 health crisis. This page contains three sections: Physical Wellbeing, Emotional Wellbeing, and Cognita Be Well Tips. You will find useful resources in the relevant sections.

The wellbeing of our students is of paramount importance. Please, if you are concerned about your child’s wellbeing then please get in touch with us.

PHYSICAL WELLBEING

Stay Active! Keep your Physical Wellbeing

Our teaching and learning doesn’t stop, and our PE lessons are more crucial than ever.
Let’s join the workouts recorded by our PE team or their students and do daily routines. Our teachers also offer zumba, yoga or guided meditation videos. These are great opportunities to spend time with family and keep active at the same time!

For more videos like these, visit our Youtube official channel.

EMOTIONAL WELLBEING

Contacts and online support for our students 

Whilst it is perfectly normal to feel anxious in the current circumstances, we feel that our students and wider community can always benefit from some additional emotional support. Meet our Designated Safeguarding Leads!
