THE wellbeing of a whole school community is being taken care of with a package of initiatives.
The majority of students and teachers at Mark Hall Academy, in Harlow, are working remotely while schools are partially closed during lockdown.
To ensure the mental health and wellbeing of both adults and children are a priority, the school has a wellbeing champion to provide support.
Initiatives include –
Teresa Parker, wellbeing champion, said: “Due to us listening to our staff and being proactive, we have provided a weekly wellbeing, mind reset and support framework to staff.
“The newsletter started last lockdown as a way of communicating wellbeing information and sharing experiences, so we all feel connected as a community. It continued when we returned as it was so popular.
“The aim of this work is to highlight the importance of good mental health, especially in our current climate.”
