Health and wellbeing definitely does matter and at Flixton Girls School we actively promote health and wellbeing activities to all students and staff.
The FGS Health & Wellbeing Curriculum has launched this year with students receiving health and wellbeing education as part of their set range of lessons. Feedback from the students has been excellent! The content of the curriculum is made up of 5 pathways: Emotional, academic, nutritional, social and moral, and physical health which aim to provide students with the foundations to leading a happy, healthy and successful life.
Collapsed timetables, Wellbeing Wednesdays and Fitness Fridays all bring the health and wellbeing curriculum to life, providing beyond the classroom pathways for all students and staff to access, try out and encourage them to participate in.
Sixth form students completed a mindfulness advent calendar over the festive period, with the emphasis on the importance of mindfulness to overcome external pressures as their mock exams approached. Activities included breathing techniques and reflections on what we have to be grateful for.
The last Feel Good Friday this year also had a special Christmas theme, with students wearing a Christmas jumper over their PE Kit. Activities include sports, relaxation and crafts; with form team events throughout the day.
