Life has slowly been getting back to normal and it would be easy to presume that this would make things easy and that many of the struggles we experienced over the last eighteen months had simply disappeared. But the reality is that things at times are still difficult and it is OK to admit that. But there are some things we can do to help as we go through this period of transition. Make sure you are getting back into helpful routines, such as a sensible and consistent bedtime. Sleep is very important in the regulation of our mood, having a healthy immune system and being prepared to learn every day. Make sure you are making time each day for doing something you enjoy and something which helps you relax. Downtime is just as important as hard-work. Get involved!

Our co-curricular timetable is full of various clubs, societies and activities that you can get involved with. They will help you make friends and discover passions, and they will keep you healthy, both physically and mentally. Keep an eye out for notices in the announcements during morning registration of what you can get involved in. Being able to unwind and have fun at lunchtime is important for feeling happy. Finally, ask for help if you need it. If you are finding it hard, that is perfectly normal, and there is a lot of support available at school. Form tutors, Heads of Year and Pupil Support Managers are always available to help and give advice. Students also have access to the school nurse, counsellor and Child Wellbeing Practitioner (who leads self–guided courses for anxiety and low mood) for more specialist support. And if you are not sure where to turn, Ms Banner runs Wellbeing dropin everyday Friday morning before school in her office, and the Report a Concern Tool on the website will mean your concern gets to the right person. We want your life at school to be as full and enjoyable as possible, and ultimately want you to look back at your time at Wilson's with fond memories, regardless of the bizarre times we have been experiencing.
