At St Michael’s Catholic Primary School we are committed to promoting positive wellbeing throughout our school. We understand the importance of wellbeing and how this plays a part in making sure the children are healthy, happy and achieve their best.  We listen to all children and provide opportunities for them to learn more and ensure they have the information to maintain a positive wellbeing.   

What is wellbeing and why is it important? 

Wellbeing is defined as the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy. It includes having good mental health, high life satisfaction, a sense of meaning or purpose and being able to manage stress. More generally, wellbeing is just feeling well.

Sports day 2023

Thank you to everyone who came and made our sports day a fun and enjoyable afternoon. Well done to all involved, especially the green team who were the overall winners.

Healthy Heart Workshop

Our children listened very carefully in their healthy heart workshop. Now they know the basics of how to do CPR and use a defibrillator. These are great skills to have.
