Health and Wellbeing
The benefits of 'keeping busy', meeting and working with others and accomplishing new challenges are proven to have positive impact on well being. Please click here to for ideas on how to broaden experience and have fun.
We offer students in Years 9 and 10 the opportunity to join the Duke of Edinburgh programme, but there are ideas here available for all young people to engage with to develop their understanding of the world around them and their role within in it.
Safeguarding and Health and Wellbeing Information for Teenagers
Please find below a link to an interactive poster from the School Nursing Team. The poster contains over 90 slides of health related information, videos and links to online and other support services. We really hope this will be a simple and effective way of sharing health information with young people.
The poster is available to you digitally. We recommend you use Chrome or Safari internet browsers to access the poster (Internet Explorer does not support all interactive features). Please use the link provided to you here:
The Lucy Rayner Foundation
The Lucy Rayner Foundation aims to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of depression and mental health challenges, especially in young adults, and to facilitate change in the way mental health is being perceived by society.
We know that some young people may be particularly anxious at this examination time of year and with that in mind we recommend that you send out the message below and the attached poster to students who are in the middle of exams and to their parents for their information.
