Wellbeing of Students
Professional learning time is an important part of school life. To ensure that staff are at the top of their game they are always learning, and not just about the content they deliver or how to best teach it – but also about the pastoral and wellbeing side of their role as an educator.
The pastoral care of students by teachers is essential to optimal learning. It is important for students to feel listened to and that their teachers understand what is important to them.
The recent staff professional learning day offered time for teaching staff to revisit their pastoral care role as they delved further into our curriculum that focuses on the wellbeing of students rather than just the classroom content that they might learn.
Staff looked at the different elements that comprise this curriculum, how this looks different for students in different year groups and how they might apply this in their everyday teaching and learning with an aim to improve the wellbeing and mental health of our students.
