Health and Wellbeing

Health and Wellbeing
We understand that families are the foundation of communities and play a critical role in the
wellbeing of all family members. Families can only thrive, if they are connected to, feel
valued and have a sense of belonging in their own communities. At Sacred Heart, we aim to
promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our pupils, parents/carers and staff.
 

"Family isn't defined only by last names or by blood; it's defined by commitment and by love. It means showing up when they need it most. It means having each other's backs. It means choosing to love each other even on those days when you struggle to like each other." - TheMindsJournal

 

Healthy Eating

Healthy food choices are important to a child’s physical and mental development.
Change4Life has some excellent information and resources on their website, to help parents and
pupils to become more knowledgeable about the benefits of eating a balanced and broad diet. Whilst also highlighting the health issues caused by making poor dietary choices.

Happiness 

 

 

Managing emotions can be very overwhelming at times both for children and adults. Especially during this very difficult time when things are constantly changing in the world.  It is good to talk about our worries and concerns, as well as being able to share all the good times too. Below are some strategies that may help your child to manage their emotions and feelings.
