In This Section

Wisborough Green School knows that if our staff, parents and children have a sense of wellbeing then we all learn and grow better. We strive to help develop children’s wellbeing during our lessons, assemblies and curriculum.

These resources are not an unending list but just a start of pinpointing some things that might help. We do not have any affiliation with these resources and do not hold any responsibility for their content. We have tried to keep these resources as up to date and relevant as we can. Feel free to contact us if you feel that we have missed any good resources or if there are areas that you are passionate about that we haven’t included.

Note to parents. Whilst many of these resources are designed for children, please visit these websites yourself before you show them to your children. This way you will make sure that all the content is appropriate for your child.

Please contact Miss Arwenna Greenway, our Wellbeing Lead, if you would like any help.

Wellbeing Worries 

We have introduced a virtual ‘talk box’ for children working remotely at home, to replace our in-school ‘time to talk’ box. Please let your child(ren) know that they can message if they have any worries or concerns about their schoolwork or if they are missing their friends or feeling lonely. Obviously, we want them to share any concerns with you, as their parents or carers, but sometimes it can help to talk to someone else. If the worries are about technical issues or are work related, we should be able to solve these fairly quickly. These emails will be sent directly to Miss Greenway, our SENDCo/ Wellbeing Lead and Mrs Butcher-Collier, our Learning Mentor, and will be entirely confidential.
