Wellbeing

Wellbeing is all about our holistic health, including the physical and emotional. When we have good levels of wellbeing we feel that life is in balance and that we can generally cope well. We feel motivated and engaged, we’re resilient and able to deal effectively with daily troubles, as well as ’bounce back’ from life’s challenges.

At William Levick, we believe the wellbeing of our whole school community is really important and work hard to support our children, parents and staff.

Our curriculum offers many opportunities to develop and support the wellbeing of our pupils including our PSHE curriculum, philosophy 4 children activities, circle time, mindfulness activities and various clubs.

We are always developing our resources, skills and what we offer to support the wellbeing of our children, staff and parents, including a brand new 'Wellbeing Library' in school.

Growing Mindful

Please follow this link for lots of resources for 'Growing Mindful' which offers support to increase our moments of awareness and stillness through the day, through life. Please note this uses YouTube so please ensure children are supervised when using this resource.
