Emotional Health and Well-Being

 

 

My name is Miss Abram and I am the new Wellbeing Counsellor and Life Skills Coordinator at St Gregory’s Catholic High School. As the Wellbeing Counsellor and Life Skills Coordinator it is my job to support and increase the awareness, and importance, of promoting children and young people’s emotional wellbeing and how this connects to learning. I aim to work closely with pupils, families and staff to support emotional wellbeing and provide mental health support for the whole school based on your individual needs.

I am based in the Augustine Centre, so if you want to come down to speak to me about any worries or concerns you have please call in at some point in the day and we can arrange a time to look at this. Support is also available for parents, to access this you can email me directly on [dabram@stgregoryshigh.com] or ring the school office on [01925 574888]. Support will be available to you and your family based on your individual needs and circumstances, so if you are worried about anything or have any questions, pupils or parents, feel free to reach out to me directly. I look forward to getting to know all of you!

 

 

Joyful June
 

This month's theme is all about finding the joy in life, even when things are difficult.  Research has shown that experiencing positive emotions in a 3-to-1 ratio with negative ones leads to a tipping point beyond which we naturally become more resilient to adversity. So, this month's aim is to test ourselves and train our brains to find the joy, even when things are tricky. 

The calendar below sets a daily activity, quotes or thoughts for day to promote wellbeing, happiness and to help create a happier and kinder world.

 

 

Jump Back Up July 2021

July 2021: Daily actions to help you find ways to bounce back.

 

This month's theme is all about ways to bounce back from things, building resilience and understanding how we can build skills that will help us to bounce back.  We can't always predict or control what life throws at us, but we can build a range of skills and nurture our resources to help us respond flexibly, effectively deal with challenges, recover more quickly and even learn and grow as a result.

 

The calendar below sets daily actions to help you find ways to bounce back.

 

 

Parental Wellbeing Support Survey

I believe that to create lasting change, support should be available for parents as well as pupils, and as such I am starting to develop different programmes of work and workshops aimed at supporting pupils through parents and to increase parental knowledge and skills. I am writing to all parents to help inform me on what areas of support you feel would benefit yourselves and your family, please could you take 5 minutes to click on the link  and complete the survey. Password: wellbeing.

If you would like to discuss anything further or have any questions you can email me directly on [dabram@stgregoryshigh.com] or ring the school office on [01925 574888].
