Wellbeing Week 2019
Wellbeing week 2019
The whole school took part in a week surrounding wellbeing. We looked at mindfulness, the importance of online safety, and the school council helped introduce brain breaks across the whole school after a visit to another local school.
The school council have visited another local primary school to observe and learn about 'Brain Breaks'. The children listened to one of the schools teachers explain about the brain and why we need to let it have a break sometimes. We then spoke to some Year 5 children about brain breaks, what they enjoy and why they are invaluable in school day. The children then went into two classes to observe and join in with a brain break. It was a fantastic visit, with lots of information shared and learnt. We are all looking forward to introducing them at Our Lady and the school council will help with this.
Current School Council Projects
The school council have been busy meeting and making posters for our schools 'Well-Being Week'. The week beginning 28/01/2019 the whole school will be very busy with activities happening surrounding positive mental health, positive friendships, mindfulness, online safety and keeping healthy.
Here are some of the posters that have been produced to start a buzz surrounding well-being!

Our School Council is a group of children who act as one voice for the children in the school. Its members are children democratically elected by their class to represent them. We have four Houses (named Alban, Campion, Fisher and More), each with two House Captains from Year 6, who also sit on the School Council. The School Council meets every three weeks, and sometimes School Governors join meetings. Children use the School Council to put forward ideas from their class Council meetings. The School Council organises events and activities and evaluates them, and is involved in developing policies. A majority vote system is used, so that decisions are made fairly.
