Here at Broadmeadow we recognise the significance of wellbeing for the whole school community.  The school has a designated Senior Mental Health Lead to ensure we establish and maintain this culture. All school are trained in being Trauma Informed and Attachment Aware, and this approach is adopted in our daily practice. Staff work hard to support our pupils through a range of emotions and expression, and helping them feel safe.  It’s okay to not be okay.

Looking after our mental health is important.  Life is often busy and demanding, and we sometimes forget to take care of ourselves.

Mind recommend the following 5 ways to wellbeing;

  1. 1. Connect with others, family and friends, or try connecting with someone new!
  2. Get active, it’s amazing how a small amount of physical activity can improve our mood!
  3. Take notice. Be aware of our feelings, acknowledge them as this helps us understand. Take to time to enjoy the moment and environment around us.
  4. Learn. Let’s expand our knowledge! This can really help us develop and boost self-esteem.
  5. Give. Studies show that giving to others makes us happy! This doesn’t have to be financial, we can give time.
