Health and Wellbeing in Schools Hub March 2020 issue
28 Feb
In the March issue of the Hub we celebrate the first four schools to achieve the Health and Wellbeing in Schools Award. Many congratulations to Yattendon CE Primary, Purley CE Primary, Brookfields Special School and St Andrew’s, Pangbourne. A quote from a pupil at Yattendon CE Primary perfectly expresses why the focus on health and wellbeing is vital. “My mental health is the way I live my life and the changes I make to help my well-being…………. Our lives are so busy and sometimes we forget about our mental health and well-being. It is too important to forget” Through the Health and Wellbeing in Schools programme we are delighted to offer a network event for Primary colleagues who lead on Relationships and Health education and the wider PSHE programme. The event on 2nd April at Shaw House includes a LGBTQ Awareness workshop from SupportU, our local LGBTQ+ charity. Find out more in the Hub. This month schools are encouraged to participate and raise awareness of - World Sleep Day 13th March 2020 will incorporate the slogan, ‘Better Sleep, Better Life, Better Planet,’ highlighting sleep’s important place as a pillar of health. Criminal Exploitation through the national CSE Awareness Day 18th March #CEADAY20 Resources including posters are available for schools to download.
