Wellbeing @ St David's

Well being for children


‘The state of being comfortable, healthy or happy…in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.’


At our school, we aim to promote positive wellbeing for every member of our staff and pupils. We pursue this aim using whole school approaches and specialised, targeted approaches aimed at vulnerable pupils. By developing and implementing practical, relevant and effective wellbeing policies and procedures we aim to promote a safe and stable environment for all staff and pupils.







As recommended by the Local Authority, the school promotes the 5 Ways to Wellbeing:

  • Connect –community links, school council, PTA, Newsletters, social media, family engagement, pupil voice groups
  • Take Notice -Physical environment of the school, pupil awards and recognition, 
  • Be Active -Healthy Schools Network, Physical Education, extracurricular activities
  • Keep Learning -ALN, Inclusion, curriculum, professional learning
  • Give -actions of the school including charity and fundraising events
