Wellbeing

Buddies

Our Year 5 children buddy with the new starters during their induction and they look after them when they become our new Year 6 and the children start in Reception. They meet regularly to play and read and support the well-being of the children in school alongside Mrs McGhie and Mrs Griffin.

New children are buddied with a child in their class to help them settle in at Wrenbury.

Nurture

All children from YR-6 are included in our nurture groups, known as Well-being Lunch Clubs.

In school we are very conscious of the 'invisible' children; children who do not stand out or get the additional attention that other children may get because of their SEND, being PP or having challenging home situations.. Often 'invisible' children are quieter, well-mannered, conscientious, attentive and good attenders and seem happy in school. It is always possible that these children can go 'under the radar' in a school but not at Wrenbury.

Each teacher and Teaching Assistant has a small group of children, from across the school age range, for whom they are responsible for each child's well-being. They are the children's mentors. One lunchtime, each week, they meet with their nurture group to eat together. This gives both the adult and the children the opportunity to get to know each other. During these weekly lunchtime sessions the group will focus on key ideas or questions to help build or raise self-esteem, confidence, resilience, pride and opportunity. For the children they will have a their very own 'champion' in school, who will look out for them across the week, motivate and encourage them with their work or friendships and be a listening ear. For the adult, they will get to know the children well and be able to support each child's social and emotional well-being as well as encouraging the children with their work, a 'you can do it attitude', find opportunities for the children to be more actively involved in school and their community and celebrate personal achievements along the way.

Assemblies
We have three whole school assemblies and two class based assemblies:
Monday: Mrs Cador — PHSE half termly theme / School ethos, vision and values
Tuesday: Mrs Charlesworth — In the news: global, national, local and Wrenbury news stories
Wednesday and Thursday — short class assembly/focus talk
Friday: Y6 lead Star awards assembly — Headteacher awards, best class attendance, celebrations

In preparation for key services across the school year, Wednesday and Thursday singing assemblies take place as necessary. These are usually in preparation for Harvest, Christmas Carols / Nativity, Easter or Leaver's Services at St Margaret's Church.
