Mental Health and Wellbeing

Here at St Oswald’s, we recognise the importance of good Mental Health.

We are committed to looking after our  Mental Health and Wellbeing.  In school, 4 pupils are trained Anti Stigma Ambassadors. They promote looking after our brains- keeping ourselves fit and active and healthy.

In February 2020, our Breakfast Church focused on Mental Health and Wellbeing and ‘Being Brave!’

During these unprecedented times we are all trying to stay healthy- looking after our mental health is so important.

Ideas to try at home…

  • Mindfullness colouring.
  • Reading.
  • A-Z of activities (Eg: A – Aerobics, B – Baking).
  • Do a jigsaw.
  • Paint a rainbow and put it on your window.
  • Try to do some exercise every day, can you make your own mini circuit at home?
  • Meditation and 5 minutes to relax listening to calming music.
  • Find a new challenge, what else can you put your mind to? Maybe you could teach yourself a new skill?
  • Do anything that makes you happy!!
