Health and Wellbeing

Whilst all students are here at Whitchurch High School we hope that they will take full advantage of all the opportunities to learn, grow and develop as a young person ready for the 21st century.  To do this means that all students need to develop an understanding of the things that they need to do to keep themselves healthy in mind, body and spirit, taking responsibility for their own personal wellbeing.

As a school we always strive to listen and guide students along the right path for them and appreciate that at times in their school career they may need some extra help and advice to get through difficult times. The links below are simply offering advice and indicate who to seek help from if needed.  If as students or parents you are concerned at any time regarding your or your child’s wellbeing, please do not hesitate to contact us directly and we will do everything we can to help.

Dewis Cymru

Dewis Cymru is the place to go if you want information or advice about your well-being – or want to know how you can help somebody else.

When we talk about your well-being, we don’t just mean your health. We mean things like where you live, how safe and secure you feel, getting out and about, and keeping in touch with family and friends. No two people are the same and well-being means different things to different people. So Dewis Cymru is here to help you find out more about what matters to you.

We’ve got information that can help you think about what matters to you, and we’ve also got information about people and services in your area that can help you with the things that matter to you. Please click on the image below for more information:
