Wellbeing

 

At Fairfield Community Primary School we aim to promote positive health and wellbeing for our whole school community (children, staff, parents and carers), and recognise how important mental health and emotional wellbeing is to our lives.

5 ways to Wellbeing

Mental wellbeing doesn't have one set meaning but describes your mental state. We might use it to talk about how we feel or how well we're coping with daily life.  Our mental wellbeing can change from moment to moment, day to day, month to month or year to year.  Having good wellbeing is important because it helps us cope with the stresses of daily life and adapt and manage in times of change or uncertainty.

Below you will find some helpful links that focus on how we can all look after our mental health and emotional well-being during this time.
