Five steps of health and wellbeing:
- Connect. If possible, connect and keep in touch with people around you: family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. Check on one another, if visits are not possible then phone, WhatsApp, text or face time.
- Be Active. If possible, get active; walk, run, cycle, play a game, gardening, dancing or construct your own home-made circuit. Ensure you are eating well, drinking water and getting the rest you need to be healthy.
- Take notice. Be observant of yourself, others and your environment. Give compliments, support one another, be kind and look for something beautiful in your family or nature.
- Keep Learning. Stay interested in local, national and international developments. How can you help yourself and others? Be aware of other opportunities to progress your learning through the school website and Google Classrooms.
- Give. Being there for one another is so important; random acts of kindness, encouragement, love and generosity. Invest in yourself, family and loved ones; compassion, time, patience and citizenship.
We are ready to listen...
Parent/Carers at home: Always try and find time to speak to your parent/carer or a sibling at home. They know you best and know how you tick so are in the best position to provide loving advice and support. However, for a wide range of reasons, not all young people find it easy to express themselves at home. In such situations it might be easier to talk to people in school.
Friends/Peers: Often your friends or peers are the best people to speak to. They may have had similar experiences and feelings, and they might be able to provide you with examples of support and next steps that have helped them. However, young people often want to talk to an adult, someone a bit older, a bit wiser and someone they really trust.
