This week is anti-bullying week. We have been talking about choices and what respect means.

‘Respect is thinking about someone’s feelings, wishes or rights’.  We are encouraging children to choose to be a good ‘Upstander’ and uphold the school’s Rights and Responsibilities.

To promote anti-bullying The Dragons Apprentice Team are selling blue wristbands for £1 at the front reception. All money raised is going to their chosen charity. The children who still have a wristband from last year are encouraged to wear their wristbands this week stand up to bullying!

Wormley is continuing to work towards the achievement of the Well-being Award for Schools. You may have noticed some of the things we have been doing in school to promote positive emotional wellbeing and good mental health.  Here are a lucky 13 below:

  1. Daily Mile: Most days the children walk/run for 15mins to try and cover a mile a day.
  2. Daily Check-in: Children can indicate to their teachers throughout the day how they are feeling and if they need support with something
  3. Mindfulness: The children have dedicated time for personal reflection and stillness
  4. Enrichment days: These are dedicated days to wellbeing and mental health such as #HelloYellow Day. All day the children participate in activities to learn how to be healthy.
  5. Rights and Responsibilities: We choose to have rights and responsibilities instead of rules. At Wormley everyone has the right to be safe and healthy; to play & learn; to be respected and to be treated equally.
  6. Nurture groups: Children who need additional emotional support
  7. Manta Rays: Lunch time nurture support
  8. Advocates: Children have adults available to support them throughout the day
  9. Calm spaces: Throughout the school the children have designated spaces equipped with personalised resources where they can calm down or take some time to relax.
  10. Social Learning Agenda: Wormley school is working with Equipping Kids (formerly the Centre of Excellence for Social Learning) to develop the children and adults as effective social learners.
  11. Forest school: For whole classes and small groups to build confidence and a connection with nature
  12. Nurture Garden: A small playground for invited children to play confidently and makes friends
  13. Collective worship: Daily opportunities for the children to reflect and develop their spirituality based on the aims of the school and Christian values identified by St Albans Diocesan

More children and young people than ever before are seeking help with their mental health, but fewer than one in ten find it easy to get the support they need. That’s why on World Mental Health Day, Wednseday 10th October, we are supporting YoungMinds #HelloYellow campaign to promote positive mental health and wellbeing.

This year we will be focusing on resilience and reflection. The children can come to school in their PE kit and the youngest children will receive a Hello Yellow sticker. During the day the children will take part in a range of activities linked to our wellbeing mascots. 

  • Captain Kinetic: Promotes being active and physically healthy
  • Nutrition Ninja: Promotes nutrition and healthy eating
  • Agent Lifestyle: Promotes harmony and compassion with others
  • Mindset Warrior: Promoting personal reflection and developing resilience

Our commitment to emotional wellbeing and positive mental health is so strong that we are currently attempting to a achieve the Wellbeing Award for Schools. Please support us with this by speaking to the children about #HelloYellow Day and asking the school about the various ways we support the children’s wellbeing in school.

A big thank you to Mrs. Penwill for donating a bench to the nurture garden.

The children took charge to position and build the bench themselves (with the help of Mr. Warne)

They are looking forward to learning more outdoors and boosting their positive well-being!

Wormley is working towards the achievement of the Well-being Award for Schools and we have been working very hard as a school to meet, promote and achieve some key objectives since our launch of ‘Hello Yellow’ Day in October 2017.

Here are some of the key objectives we have committed  to promoting and securing at Wormley:

  • Ensuring emotional well-being and mental health are at the heart of our school’s aspirations
  • All relevant policies connect with emotional well-being and mental health
  • To create an awareness across the whole school community of the importance of emotional well-being, including it’s impact on academic performance
  • Implement positive ways of talking about, and removing the stigma around, mental health.
  • Positive well-being interventions to support the whole school community
  • Provide clear external pathways for specialist services and signposts to online information
  • Pupil voice mechanisms are in place and used at regular points- involving our Pupil Parliament.
  • Work with other schools to share best practice and new learning around good mental health and well-being.

 

 

 

 

Our next step is to develop ‘Well-being Champions’ from across the whole school community….

Please contact us for further information if you would like to be involved!
