Parents' Wellbeing Hub

Our aim is to support and promote 'Wellbeing' for all pupils at Cockington Primary school.

Creating a whole school culture of ‘wellbeing’ is as important now as it's ever been. We recognise that the promotion of wellbeing needs to be inclusive, embracing our whole school community, whether it is pupils, their families or our staff.

We appreciate that parents/carers sometimes need advice about how they too can support their child's wellbeing and mental health, so this site is here to signpost information and guidance that you may find helpful.

What is 'Wellbeing'?

 ‘Well-being’ is generally defined as the experience of health, happiness and prosperity. It includes having good mental health, a feeling of belonging/social inclusion, a sense of meaning or purpose, and an ability to manage anxiety. More generally, well-being can also more simply be described as ‘feeling well’.

We believe that emphasising the importance of wellbeing and guiding the pupils in our care towards looking after themselves, will empower them and encourage positive lifestyles. It will also provide a healthy and happy school environment; essential to supporting and promoting effective learning as well as preparing our students for their future.
