What is wellbeing?

The world health organisation defines health as a “state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Which is why here at Highbury we provide informative health education incorporating the 5 ways to wellbeing.

What are the 5 ways to wellbeing?

The 5 ways to wellbeing is a simple and accessible tool we use to measure and improve our student’s health and wellbeing. By educating and engaging with these 5 aspects across a wide range of subjects, we encourage our students to monitor and increase healthy choices to enable them to reach their potential and ability to unlock a sustainable future.

The 5 ways are:

  • Connect
  • Be Active
  • Take Notice
  • Keep Learning
  • Give

What subjects does Health & Wellbeing cover?

We have 5 specifically tailored courses depending on the student’s needs. These include subjects such as why young people take risk, motivation, life skills, communication, nutrition, sexual health, drugs, restorative practice and much more.
