THE WELLBEING AWARD FOR SCHOOLS
In July 2021, Wembley Primary School achieved the Wellbeing Award for Schools (WAS). This award will remain valid for the next three years. Developed in partnership with the National Children’s Bureau (NCB), the WAS has helped us prepare and equip ourselves to promote emotional wellbeing and positive mental health across the whole-school community.
Both NCB and Wembley Primary school share the vision that we have an education system where good emotional wellbeing and mental health are at the heart of the culture and ethos of our schools, so that pupils, with the support of their teachers, can build confidence and flourish.
The WAS has been a welcome opportunity to recognise the exceptional work that we do in this area. The key features of a whole-school approach form the basis of the award, and it provides schools with a benchmark of best practice against which to test itself.
The award was led by Ms Griffith who is our SENCO and Mental Health Lead and a “Change Team” that consists of teachers, parents, pupils and governors. The change team continues to meet on a regular basis to push the wellbeing agenda forward for all stakeholders within the school.
