At Hillborough Infant & Nursery School, our vision is of a place that everyone wants and loves to be at.
Well-being is a big part of this and how we relate, interact, learn, and grow together. Our day-to-day ethos and approach that we have at our school has an impact on each one of us - child or adult. We therefore strive to promote well-being through our key goals of; being the best that we can be, we are together in all of this and that we put ourselves and others at the centre of caring for all.
Five ways to well-being are:
- connect - connect with people around you - big or small
- be active - find an activity or interest that you enjoy and make it part of your life
- keep learning - new skills can give you a sense of success and achievement but also give you confidence
- give to others - a thank you, a kind word, a smile and ensuring that we give support to those in need
- be mindful - be more aware of living in the moment, include and acknowledge your thoughts and feelings, your body, and the joy of the natural world around us all.
We offer different levels of support:
Universal Support - to meet the needs of all our pupils through our overall ethos and our wider curriculum. For instance developing growth mindset for all.
Additional support - for those who may have short term needs and those who may have been made vulnerable by life experiences such as bereavement.
Targeted support- for pupils who need more differentiated support and resources or specific targeted interventions such as wellbeing groups or personal mentors.
