What is Wellbeing?

Wellbeing at North Town focuses on children‘s social and emotional development whilst building a sense of connectedness, focus and purpose. We approach this holistically meaning children’s behavior, their voice and their opinions are fundamental in achieving our overall vision to produce citizens of the world.

How do we promote and develop children’s Wellbeing?

One area of wellbeing is the school council where a lot of our work is based around the United Nations Convention Rights of the Child (UNCRC), which is embedded in our classroom culture and practice. We also use programs such as THRIVE and Jigsaw PSHE. These approaches combined provide a culture whereby children develop resilience, problem solving skills and develop strategies to encourage pupil's voice, authentic involvement in their learning, decision making, and peer-led approaches
