Well School Movement

We are pleased to have been selected as one of the first 30 schools in the UK to lead on the Well School Movement.

Well Schools put the health and well-being of pupils and staff at the heart of their school. The purpose of the Well School movement is to support schools to drive improvements in well-being for all teachers and school staff, senior leaders and young people by placing well-being at the very heart of schools. Currently we are working with the other schools to drive change, share challenges and solutions and work together to help other schools.
