As part of our Safeguarding Curriculum we explicitly teach children strategies to support their wellbeing in our 15 minute 'Wellbeing Wednesday' sessions, which are in addition to our PSHE curriculum.  


We enjoy taking part in 'Wellbeing Wednesday Teddy Breathing'. The children commented that teddy breathing makes them feel calm and relaxed. Some have said they use this at other times too, e.g. on a night to help them get to sleep.

'I like it because it tells us good stuff about ourselves.  We use it to learn about how to keep ourselves healthy' 

'I like Wellbeing Wednesday because it's helped me to be more active and happy.  It's good for my mind and body when I feel stressed out and tired.'

'We learn to keep ourselves safe and have a healthy mind....because you need your brain to help you learn.' 

Wellbeing apps

Helping our children manage their health and wellbeing is a top priority. Nothing beats getting out in the fresh air, meeting friends and having fun, but some children may find apps useful for things such as learning about emotions, managing anxiety etc. Internet Matters have put together a list which gives details such as: suitable ages, purpose, how the app works and (where applicable) the cost. From recognising emotions to practising mediation techniques, these apps offer a range of ways to manage wellbeing.
