Here at Outwood Grange Academies Trust, we put students first to raise standards and transform lives. Creating a supportive environment where our students feel happy and able to flourish underpins everything we do.
We have created a new website which provides a comprehensive range of services for our students and parents to access to support them and their mental wellbeing. To visit, please click on the link below:
It is important to remain physically active, the recommendation for children and young people aged 5-18 is to aim for an average of at least 60 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity a day across the week.
Sport England have produced a ‘Stay in, work out’ section which focuses on tips, advice and guidance on how to keep or get active in and around your home for all age groups.
Mediation is also an important tool in improving your mental well being and can be an easy first step on your journey towards a healthier, happier life. You can learn to meditate with a free two-week trial of Headspace
