Well-Being and Mental Health are a big focus for us here at Stanton Primary & Nursery School.
Wellbeing is about feeling good and doing (or functioning) well.
Feelings of happiness, contentment, enjoyment, curiosity and engagement are characteristic of someone who has a positive experience of their life.
Experiencing positive relationships, having some control over one’s life and having a sense of purpose are all important attributes of wellbeing. Wellbeing is important for everyone
Childline’s website has a useful ‘calm down’ zone, with activities which aim to help children feel better when they are feeling anxious, scared or sad. The ideas include breathing exercises, a ‘let it go’ box and creating a ‘sense drawer’. https://www.childline.org.uk/toolbox/calm-zone/
