Health and Wellbeing
Research is showing us, how our health and happiness can be boosted by doing certain things on a day-to-day basis. The Wheel of Wellbeing consists of six easy things we can all do every day to help us to feel happier and more positive.
At Thurnham Glasson C of E Primary School, we integrate the Wheel of Wellbeing across our wider curriculum and regularly update our families through newsletters regarding wellbeing activities and contacts.
This short video provides a brief introduction. For tips, activities and places, click here.
Why we must never stop talking about children and young people’s mental health
Better mental health starts with a conversation. Achieving that first step – mustering the courage to share something so deeply personal and troubling – needs support, understanding and encouragement. This is especially true for children and young people. If you have any concerns about a child's mental health or wellbeing we are here to help and if we cannot we will signpost you to those who can.
If you think you may need help in any way please contact our DSL (Designated Safeguarding Lead : Mrs Rune Duncan) as soon as possible.

If you are in a crisis
It is important to keep yourself safe. If you feel suicidal or have hurt yourself; let an adult know as soon as you can. It may be that the safest place for you to be assessed is through A&E at the hospital.
