From this term, Forest School is launching Wellbeing Education which will replace PSHEE lessons in Years 7-9 and will cover our key elements of Wellbeing – Tolerance, Health, Relationships, Independence, Values and Engagement (THRIVE).
The main difference from PSHEE is that it will allow a more holistic approach to Wellbeing inside and outside of school, and allow pupils more time to reflect on their own wellbeing. Forest School’s Head of Wellbeing Education Rebecca Kay says “Promoting positive pupil wellbeing is at the heart of what we do at Forest School and through Wellbeing lessons, we want to help pupils make sensible choices, be resilient and able to overcome obstacles and be prepared for life beyond Forest School.”
This new approach should also allow for more clarity in communication with parents and pupils and will also be supported by activities and events outside the classroom.
