Wellbeing at St Joseph’s

From the 2020/21 academic year, the Wellbeing team launched a range of new agendas ensuring our children
and staff were given the support needed as we returned to school after the disruption of the school year.

Their work includes:

  • Implementing a PSHE curriculum based on three core themes – health and wellbeing, relationships and
    living in the wider world.
  • Introducing the St Joseph’s Core Values and the Wheel of Wellbeing: Empathy, Respect, Resilience, Ambition, Adaptability and Responsibility.
  • Reintroducing The Daily Mile and launching a whole school exercise programme.
  • Raising money for Young Minds – a charity focusing on the wellbeing of children and young adults

Alongside our ‘Behaviour for Learning’ values also have The St Joseph’s ‘Wheel of Wellbeing’.  You can see our
Behaviour for Learning and Relationships Policy here.

The Wheel of Wellbeing, or WOW, focuses on six key themes.

  • Body – being active and keeping healthy.
  • Mind – promoting life-long learning and being open to trying new things.
  • Spirit – looking out for others, practising random acts of kindness, giving thanks.
  • People – connecting with others.
  • Place – savouring our surroundings.
  • Planet – looking after our planet.

The primary leadership team will work alongside the wellbeing team in introducing themes throughout the school year,
giving them ideas on how they can demonstrate the different areas and boost their wellbeing in the school.
