What are Wellbeing Warriors?
Catchgate's Wellbeing Warriors are a group made up of children and adults who all believe that the wellbeing of every person in the school is fundamental to their happiness and good mental health. We meet on a regular basis to ensure that any concerns are highlighted and that the mission statement that we have in place, is implemented and effective.
Wellbeing Warriors have a special duty to fulfill within school. They have a rota which is followed at break and lunch times, and they ensure they are present and visible to all. This enables children to actively seek out Wellbeing Warriors if they need to talk to them or discuss anything in confidence. Wellbeing Warriors are also trained to spots signs for children who might need reassuring, support and spoken to to support them.
As wellbeing warriors we:
- Aim to change the way we all think and act about how we feel- this is our mental health.
- Understand and accept that we ALL have different feelings and it is okay to not be okay!
- Will not be responsible for your behaviour and not be able to solve your problems. If we can, we will. If we can’t, we will get a responsible adult to help.
- Will listen to others so that they can talk about how they are feeling.
