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
