Student Wellbeing

At RBA we are committed to supporting students’ wellbeing to enable students to achieve their personal best. The school has a strong pastoral system of form tutors, Heads of Year and Student Welfare Managers and also a PSHE curriculum which supports discussion of issues such as self-harm, depression and maintaining well-being.

We have a selection of students who have elected to be Wellbeing Warriors; these warriors work alongside the Wellbeing Coordinator to ensure that each year group are supported in their emotional, social and practical wellbeing needs. Students regularly organise wellbeing events, and we have a designated week in school where we carry out wellbeing activities, as we believe that it is important to reflect on self-care as good practice for life. The development of these activities is done with our students for our students. The importance of looking after our mental health and talking about our troubles is highlighted to our students and our core value of Care exemplifies this.

In year 7 our students carry out a ‘Kindness Project’ where they think about what it takes to make a good friend, where to get support if they are struggling, and undertake community projects to make them feel more included in the #RBAfamily ethos that we are cultivating at the school. It is clear that this process is rewarding for the students, who present to an outside assessor, what friendship means to them and how kind they can be; which results in them achieving ‘Kindness Ambassador Status’.

Each year we also organise a ‘Working on Wellness’ Festival called WOWfest. Which is in partnership with The John Warner School and Love Hoddesdon. It allows local businesses to showcase what they can do to help our local community alongside our students and parents to work on their wellness, and think about how to look after ourselves. It also gives us an idea about how to get help, and who from, should we need it. Look out for fliers to explain how to reserve your tickets for the day. #WOWfest2020 is on the 2 May 2020.
