‘Looking after student and staff wellbeing during exam season: Part two of three.’

Whole school approaches to wellbeing are desperately needed. I often equate it to a multi-sensory experiences. Amongst other things, when done properly, this approach can be seen, heard and felt. It is evident for all stakeholders to see.

Mike Armiger writes in “Wellbeing- the importance of professional development for OUP

There is a universality to wellbeing: it is for everyone, not just for those who need it at a particular moment in time, to the child feeling anxious, with worries at home or concerns with their learning, but for every member of the school community, especially those who might pass under the radar.
