Wellbeing at Balliol

Wellbeing at Balliol

Wellbeing at Balliol is held at the core of all our values. We strive to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for all our staff, pupils, parents and stakeholders. We recognise the needs and demands in school are ever changing and are committed to responding to these to ensure the best support for all.  We have decided to use the Wellbeing Award as a vehicle to drive this support.

The Change Team 

The Change Team have been set up to promote emotional wellbeing and positive mental health across our whole school community. The team comprises of teachers, teaching assistants, support staff, parents, governors and pupils to ensure all voices are heard and represented. The Change Team is led by Mrs Bicknell and the team will be responsible for driving the Wellbeing Award.

Mental Health Awareness Week  

 It is Mental Health Awareness week this week, the focus is about getting outside into nature, spending time enjoying our natural environments and all they have to offer.
Take a walk in the park, through the woods or by some water, take time to look at your surroundings and listen to the sounds of birds and leaves moving in the breeze. Try growing some things in your garden, window box or get some seedlings underway, to grow your own veg!
The video below is really nice and super to share with children while teaching them the importance of looking after themselves physically and mentally.

If you can, send in some photos of your adventures in nature – we’d love to see our children out and about enjoying the fresh air. (email to
