Health and Wellbeing Pack

During this unprecedented time, we know the challenges many students are facing with their own health and wellbeing. We have put together a great package of resources which is designed to help students and parents and help keep students healthy and active.

Below are all the links to this package. You will find:

2 sets of at home sport challenges

A document providing some FREE course links that students can access for qualifications in sport.

2 pictures showing routes for both a 1 mile and a 5km run around the school area. Both runs avoid heavily trafficked roads.

A wellbeing guide with lots of resources and links to help with all things health and wellbeing.

A THRIVE guide helping both parents and students.

A PDF for parents on encouraging your child to be active.

We hope that these links will help and provide some help to all students and parents at home.
