Keeping well to do well at BPSP

Everybody's positive wellbeing and mental health are really important to all of us at Baden-Powell and St. Peter's CE Junior School. 'Keeping well', both physically and mentally, will mean that you are far more likely 'to do well' in each aspect of your life. This does not just mean 'doing well' at school subjects like Maths, Art or Geography or 'doing well' at your favourite hobby: it means 'doing well' at showing compassion and respect to all different kinds of people both in school and in the wider community; it means investing in friendship and showing what it means to be a good friend; it means having aspiration and resilience to be the best that you can be; it means 'doing everything with all your heart'


And to do all these things well, we need to be physically and mentally well. 

This section of our website is especially for you to help you maintain positive wellbeing. There are links to websites and different activities that you can do to help you with this; you may also see some of your wellbeing work on here from time to time.


Finally, it is also very important to mention that if you are feeling physically or mentally unwell, please share this with a trusted adult - a member of your family or an adult at school. You may think it is a small thing or maybe even a bit silly but if it is bothering you and making you feel sad or anxious, sharing with an adult could help.


So have a look below and click on links to see what there is and if you have any suggestions for what else could be useful, please let your class teacher or Mrs. Inns know.

Children's Mental Health Week: Top Tips for Children

5 Steps to Wellbeing




Stormbreak is an important part of your school week; it gives everyone a chance (including the teachers) to switch off from lessons and make time to reflect upon their wellbeing and things we can do to build our resilience and levels of positivity. It is the 'break from the storm' that helps us all reset and iron out any bumps so that we feel calm and ready to return to our learning.


Sometimes, you may find it useful to try some Stormbreak exercises at home. We will be uploading videos of different Stormbreaks right here. We hope you enjoy them.

Learning new things can be tough! It can feel like we have a monster in our minds saying 'you can't do it!' In this video, Jaime shares how to overcome the hard bit of doing something for the first time. We can make the 'I can't' monster disappear - just by saying "OH YES I CAN!"
