Topic: Leading a wellbeing initiative in your school

I am excited to announce that on Sunday 25th June we will have a host of 'beacon educators' sharing their blogs with practical examples about leading wellbeing initiatives in their schools. It is guaranteed to be a 'bumper pack' wellbeing edition for any weary educator needing some fresh inspiration at the end of the academic year. These initiatives could be with governors; staff; students; whole school; families and the school's wider community; a particular year group; an intervention project; assembly presentations; pshe lesson(s); cross-curricular scheme of work; extra-curricular; a themed day; themed week; about embedding intrinsic values; recognising triggers and building strategies.....the list is endless.

The key with any wellbeing initiative is that we get 'buy in ' from the people we are working with in schools and that they 'sign up' to a whole shift in the language of learning: positive mental health and wellbeing are  as important as achieving good grades.

It's been a great year with many exciting educators taking the initiative and raising the profile. It is important we share these inspirational  examples and hopefully motivate others to keep up the momentum in their schools.

Perhaps you can also connect with an educator who might be working in the same area as you and we could set up beacon contacts?  The ones who shine the light for others to follow for mental health and wellbeing initiatives.

Below are a list of times with 28 slots where you can expect to read blogs (twitter handles and staff rm names provided.) Click on their links and it will take you to their twitter page where you can find out more about the contributor and make further contact if you wanted to. 

Remember to use #wellbeingdgmeet‍ when searching or responding in all online blog and social media posts and if possible try and take some time out to read and feedback on some of the great projects you will get to hear about.

Looking forward to connecting with you all as we inspire each other for the incoming 2017/2018 academic year and THANK YOU to those who have come on board.
