Health and Wellbeing

The health and welfare of our students is paramount to us. All schools in the Four Stones Multi Academy Trust provide a comprehensive PSHE programme that runs alongside our first rate pastoral care. The aim of Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) is to support students to develop an understanding of key issues that will affect them throughout their life. The programme includes units on sex education, health education, drugs education, financial capability and work related learning, which are all statutory requirements.  As the world changes around our young people, so does our PSHE programme to ensure that students have the knowledge and support they need to make informed decisions about their lives and about the world in which they live.

We believe that students should learn in a calm and purposeful environment, where behaviour is exemplary and routines are established. Research shows that students thrive with structure, it is imperative that we ensure our students are accustomed to our routines giving them a sense of organisation and stability which will benefit their emotional and physical well-being.  Our bodies work better when our sleeping, eating and exercise routines are successfully maintained. Routine in school life aids mental health, it can help students cope with change, to form healthy habits and to reduce stress and anxiety levels. Our pastoral curriculum, supported and understood by every teacher, focuses upon establishing positive routines and behaviours to support students as they transition throughout their time at school. We aim to utilise every opportunity to help students to become informed, tolerant, resilient, kind and confident ready to leave education and take deal with whatever life throws at them.
