Wellbeing Award for Schools

As was mentioned in the newsletter last month, Dysart School is starting the process of working towards the Wellbeing Award for Schools mark. This whole-school award focuses on ensuring effective practice and provision is in place which promotes the emotional wellbeing and mental health of both staff and pupils.

In working towards the Award we will be looking at where we are currently, as a school, in terms of our emotional wellbeing and mental health. We will be action planning to make improvements and effect change to embed an ethos where mental health is regarded as the responsibility of all.

Jo, Dysart’s Assistant Principal who is leading the Wellbeing Award for Schools project, has created a short video for parents and carers with Joanna McEwen, who works with our pupils to promote positive relaxation techniques, to explain the work that we will be doing.

 

The school is a calm and happy place. As a result, pupils enjoy school, are keen to learn and attend well.
