At St Anne’s Catholic Primary School we are committed to promoting positive wellbeing throughout our school. We understand the importance of wellbeing and how this plays a part in making sure the children are healthy, happy and achieve their best.  We listen to all children and provide opportunities for them to learn more and ensure they have the information to maintain a positive wellbeing.

What is wellbeing and why is it important?

Wellbeing is defined as the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy. It includes having good mental health, high life satisfaction, a sense of meaning or purpose and being able to manage stress. More generally, wellbeing is just feeling well.  

 5 Ways to Wellbeing

At St Anne’s Catholic Primary School we try to include the 5 ways in our school days. Evidence suggests there are 5 steps you can take to improve your mental health and wellbeing. Trying these things could help the children feel more positive and able to get the most out of life.

Ideas of how you can fit the 5 ways into everyday life for children:


  • Spend time with your friends and family

  • Play sports with your friends  
  • Walk somewhere with friends and family 
  • Skip 
  • Dance
  • Exercise in any way you like.

Take Notice  

  • Recognise the beauty around you 
  • Be aware of your emotions 
  • Relax
  • Meditate
  • What can you see, smell, taste, feel, hear?


  • Say ‘Thank you’
  • Offer to help 
  • Include others 
  • Do something nice for someone  
  • Give someone a smile  

Keep Learning
