Acton CE Primary Wellbeing Warriors had an exciting opportunity today to work alongside One Goal to become accredited Wellbeing Community Champions!
As part of their certified training, our wellbeing warriors identified what the 4 stages of mental health are and how to recognise and regulate the different feelings they may experience. The children learnt different strategies to achieve a healthy mental state such as meditation, calming strategies and wellbeing games. The children additionally learnt different strategies to identify when their mental health is being impacted and how to move back from a ‘blue’ or ‘amber’ mental state. Most importantly the children learnt that communication and self-regulation play a vital role in mental health. I know they look forward to relaying the message back to their classmates and taking an active role in promoting a healthy mental state across the school.
Miss Bloore, wellbeing lead stated, ‘Here at Acton, we take the mental health of staff and pupils extremely seriously. By working with the wonderful team at One Goal, we have been able to ensure that the children have a deeper understanding of how we can look after our mental health. The wellbeing warriors will now have the correct skills to roll out their knowledge to the rest of the school. I am very proud of the achievements of the children.
