HOLY FAMILY SCHOOL WELLBEING PLAN ON A PAGE

Our vision: To have the wellbeing of everyone on site at the centre of what we do

How we will start to do this…

Communication:

  • Ensure that consultation is up and running within the school to ensure student and staff needs are identified and addressed
  • Development of theme weeks related to wellbeing that can be shared with the school
  • Wellbeing in Mind Team to attend Senior Leadership Team meetings to help provide input and review strategy
  • Have a central branding for all the school’s wellbeing support services
  • Create a consistent message for all students and staff members
  • Develop the website – one central point for information, accessible by all. Consider having a tile on website.
  • Review and develop resources on school VLE or similar
  • Develop posters and other means of communicating the wellbeing message involving students in the development
  • Weekly messages on social media promoting wellbeing and how to access support
  • Local press release

School Policy:

  • Create and develop a wellbeing policy to communicate that wellbeing is everyone’s business
  • Review how we support students who miss lessons due to wellbeing needs

Awareness:

  • Training to members of staff around Whole School Approach/Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and what this is. Consider elements of both that could be utilised and embedded in the classroom and used by teachers
  • Wellbeing in Mind Team to develop understanding about other services and contacts that are provided within the locality for all.
  • Review and refresh PHSCE curriculum to ensure it incorporates wellbeing and mental health, provide young people with better knowledge, understanding and skills
  • Ensure PHSE content is adapted to meet specific year group needs
  • Include wellbeing and wellbeing support in inductions for new academic year
  • Hold workshop training events for staff members. Initially do one about staff wellbeing/transition and the importance of it. Stress vulnerability would also be a useful workshop to deliver. Teenage brain/anxiety
  • Ensure we are communicating what we are doing to everyone in the school
  • Deliver assemblies to all students about who the team is, how we will work with the school, deliver wellbeing message as everyone’s business and clarification of what people can expect

Engagement:

  • Wellbeing in Mind Team to continue getting to know students and staff
  • Develop whole school approach alongside the Senior Leadership Team
  • Ensure we are regularly seeking feedback from students and staff members
  • Develop the wellbeing lead role within our staff team
  • Support students to become wellbeing champions for their year group
  • Wellbeing champions to become actively involved in the implementation and review of our wellbeing action plan and WIMT to help develop their knowledge
