At St John Fisher Catholic Primary School, we recognise the pressures of modern life and how difficult it can be at times to maintain high levels of wellness in challenging situations and to know where to look for support when needed. Thus, we are committed to ensuring that we do everything possible to foster high levels of wellbeing amongst all members of our school community including staff, parents and children.

The most up-to-date evidence suggests that building the following five actions into our day-to-day lives is important to wellbeing:

Connect… with the people around you – family, friends, colleagues and neighbours

Keep Learning… try something new, rediscover an old interests or take on a different responsibility

Be Active… go for a walk, run, cycle, dance. Exercising makes you feel good

Take Notice… be curious, catch sight of the beautiful, remark on the unusual, notice the changing seasons

Give… do something for a friend, thank someone, smile, volunteer your time.

We continue to teach the Zones of Regulation as part of our curriculum. More information can be located as part of the SEND / Inclusion page.
