In October Eaton Square Senior School celebrated World Mental Health Day, striving to increase awareness and open up discussions around our Mental Health.
Students explored the link our mental wellbeing has to our physical health and focused particularly on what ways we can proactively protect and support our mental health in everyday life.
The students were challenged to ask themselves the below questions for 10 days and to monitor how this increased level of self awareness impacts upon their mood.
How can I feel connected today?
How can I feel healthy today
How can I feel purposeful today?
In Tutor groups students have been set tasks that focus on their self esteem, practicing gratitude and developing their own strategies to further strengthen their mental health.
Pastoral care is the cornerstone of an Eaton Square education. By demonstrating warmth, kindness, compassion and encouragement, we give students the perfect conditions to thrive.
Form Tutors are the primary point of contact for students and their parents, and their role is to champion students while monitoring their emotional wellbeing and academic progress. Form Time and Assemblies are an extension of our Wellbeing Curriculum, providing space to explore relevant pastoral areas.
Wellbeing is a weekly timetabled lesson for all students, where they are encouraged to lead healthy and responsible lives. Lessons are delivered by teaching staff and visiting speakers, covering a range of moral, spiritual, cultural and political issues, such as safer use of technology, positive body image and managing anxiety.
Form Tutors are supported in this role by Heads of Section to ensure each individual is provided with an outstanding level of tailored pastoral care.
