This term at Colsterworth has seen the launch of our focus on Mental Health & Wellbeing for both pupils and staff. The children excitedly arrived in school one ordinary Wednesday to find labelled balloons hidden around the corridors and classrooms…this surprise start to the day signalled the beginning of our work on the 5 ways to Wellbeing. Our newly designated Wellbeing Warriors within Key stage 2 have been vital in encouraging all children to take part in different challenges to improve their Mental Health & Wellbeing. Video messages from Mrs Cornish & the Wellbeing team are shown each Wednesday introducing a new challenge from one of the 5 areas. This focus links well to our new #Healthy, Happy, Active initiative, with our Sports Council leading the way to improving all our lifestyles through curriculum linked challenges. Look out for your child returning home with their challenge certificates any day now to demonstrate how they are making an IMPACT!
