Did you know that if you are happy and positive, your brain is 31% more productive than if you are negative, neutral or stressed?* If we look at happiness in this way, it’s not just ‘a nice way to feel’, it’s an essential part of learning. If we want to be at our best and learn as much as we can, we need to feel good!
At Wootton Park School we want all learners to feel happy and to have a positive sense of emotional and mental wellbeing. This is why we put so much into our Wellbeing Department. Whilst you are here, you are not just learning about all your subjects, you are learning about and growing into the person you are going to be.
If you need to talk about anything, have questions you would like to ask or would just like to know more about how to look after your own wellbeing, we are here to help.
