Mental Wellbeing

Being mindful of the challenges facing our staff and students is always at the forefront of our activities at Flixton Girls School. Our Flixton Family can rely upon each other for support whether this is providing staff with ‘Time to Talk’ to managers and colleagues, through to provision for students to have time and space for contemplation and quiet reflection to achieve growth.

Our activities during Children’s Mental Health week have emphasised the theme of ‘Growing Together’ to build upon our Flixton Family and community, by all being part of growing our school and ensuring we all contribute to making it the best it can be for everyone to enjoy, feel safe and valued!

Students from across a variety of committees and clubs have worked collaboratively to bring together a jam packed week of activities including assemblies and lunch time drop-ins, culminating in our Fitness Friday event in support of our ongoing ‘Growing Together’ projects. Thanks to everyone who supported us and helped to raise over £100 to aid our gardening and poly-tunnel grow together projects!

Mrs Smith, newly appointed Assistant Head of Curriculum commented, ‘By opening up conversations and showing learners the different aspects of ‘Growth’, they engage with their healthy learning pathways, which feeds the growth of our whole Flixton Family. Student led assemblies emphasised how they have already achieved so much in terms of physical growth from babies to children through to teenagers and young adults. Emotional growth can be achieved by learning from the experiences of their younger self. Using coping strategies to work through life’s challenges and set-backs, by adapting, responding and believing in themselves. It’s this progression with the help of others that enables personal growth.’

Thanks must go to members of our Equalities Club, Health & Wellbeing Ambassadors and Anti Bullying Committee for all their hardwork in preparation for this week’s work.
