Preshil takes a whole school approach to mental and physical health. Students’ positive wellbeing is an integral part of their school experience and must be treated as such.
At Preshil, wellbeing foundations are forged and allowed the space to grow and flourish. Acceptance nurtures and inspires individuals with the courage to be and become themselves. The Preshil ideal of wellbeing extends to nurturing and valuing relationships, creating safe spaces, and building strong communities. Wellbeing at Preshil is an ongoing state of healthy loving support that inspires resilience. It is through such resilience that the often-harsh realities of life can be more gracefully weathered.
We acknowledge that the importance of wellbeing is emerging as a foundational concept. The skills which create a powerful wellbeing practice can be learnt, and are required to be worked on and progressed throughout the schooling journey. As such, these ideals are being filtered through into specific curricular endeavours and through adapting pedagogic approaches of all staff. Keeping with Preshil’s progressive nature, wellbeing, being contextual to all persons, is intrinsically evolutionary and will be consistently reviewed.
