Wellbeing- The Amber Flag Initiative
Following numerous years of succes with initiatives such as the Green Flag and the Active Flag, within our school, we have decided to focus on promoting positive Mental Wellbeing over the next number of years.
In order to promote positive mental health and well-being we have decided to take part in the Amber Flag Initiative. This involves the whole school community coming together in other to create a safe, positive and healthy attitude towards our general physical and mental health and well-being
It is recognised in studies that positive mental health and well-being enables young people to lead fulfilling lives.
Home and family are recognised as the primary source of nurturing and support for children. However, mental health and well-being are recognised as everyone’s concern and involves the whole school community, parents/guardians and others involved in day to day school life.
Positive mental health for children is part of their overall health and is inextricably linked with Wellbeing.
