Wellbeing

The girls love their dedicated Wellbeing lesson each week which is an extension of our pastoral provision. The lesson provides time for them to pause and consider ways to support their own wellbeing, and how they can help to promote the wellbeing of those around them. 

At Bute House, Wellbeing lessons encompass Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) and Citizenship. Our modern, engaging and responsive Wellbeing curriculum explicitly teaches girls about topics under the termly themes of ‘Relationships’, ‘Living in the Wider World’ and ‘Health and Wellbeing’. 

Lessons are varied and thought-provoking, from designing an ideal caring community to considering how to challenge stereotypes. Through such topics, the girls are inspired to think deeply about how they can contribute to making the world a better place. The girls spend time working on their Wellbeing Passports where they track their wellbeing journey throughout their time at Bute House. 

Our Wellbeing curriculum is fully updated to comply with the Government’s requirements for Relationships, Health and Sex Education (RSE) within primary schools. Parents are supported each term with suggestions of books and discussion points to allow them to be involved in their daughter’s education on these vital topics.

The celebration of Mental Health Week, Anti-Bullying Day and E-Safety Day with workshops and dedicated special events, along with residential trips from Year 3 and up, complement the girls’ Wellbeing lessons.
