Wellbeing

During lockdown the wellbeing of our school community is very important to us. We are here to help and are updating this page regularly as well as sending wellbeing tasks on your childs Seesaw account. Some of the information will be aimed at parents as well as children as we understand this is a strange time for everyone.

If you need anything even just a listening ear please do not hesitate to call school or email your class teacher.

Whilst learning at home it is vital that you take a break. Why not try some of these little games for a brain break.

Five Ways to Well-Being – Barlby Bridge Community Primary School

What are the five ways to wellbeing?

The Five Ways to Wellbeing Framework was developed by the New Economics Foundation as a set of five evidence based actions that promote wellbeing. Based on the latest scientific evidence the simple actions, if taken regularly, can improve wellbeing and enhance quality of life.

The Five Ways to Wellbeing are to:

• Connect – connecting with others

• Give – giving – looking outward as well as inward

• Be active – doing something active

• Take Notice – taking notice of the world around you

• Keep Learning – learning new things Each action can be undertaken individually or collectively as part of everyday activity.

The Five Ways to Wellbeing may help young people:

• Make the most of opportunities and deal with stressful situations by taking time out and learning how to cope when things get tough.

• Increase their interpersonal skills, empathy and communication skills through giving and seeing themselves as part of the wider community.

• Increase their chances of employability and self-worth by taking notice of what they are good at and what they have to offer others.
