Interview with Miss Warner by Daniel

1. Can you explain a bit more about the five ways of wellbeing?

The five ways of wellbeing are: Take notice, keep active, connect, give and keep learning. For example, to take notice means look out for beautiful bugs, trees and green men when you take a trip.

2. How stable is the school currently?

We are currently working on lots of nurture sessions and doing PHSE weekly. We try to keep a positive environment.

3. How has Covid-19 affected the school's health and wellbeing?

Some children missed their friends and found it difficult but some are doing really well.

We use worry boxes and worry monsters, peer mentors and happy books.
