Wellfield Methodist and Anglican Church School

Wellbeing Ambassadors

During their time at Wellfield Church School, children will spend over 9,000 hours at school. With such a huge amount of time spent in the classroom and playground, we feel it is essential that we provide an environment which promotes emotional wellbeing and healthy minds. The social and emotional skills, knowledge and behaviours that our pupils learn in the classroom can help them to build resilience and set the pattern for how they will manage their mental health throughout their lives.  Emotional wellbeing can impact on academic achievement, success and satisfaction in later life. Evidence shows that mental health and wellbeing programmes in schools, can lead to significant improvements in children’s mental health, and social and emotional skills. 

At Wellfield Church School, we have a team of Wellbeing Ambassadors who support the whole school approach to mental health, emotional resilience and growth mindset. The ambassadors have worked with Paula Swainston from YNOT Aspire on how to provide a supportive environment to their peers. They are extremely enthusiastic to provide a friendly, smiling face and help whenever needed.



Our School Mental Health Champions

Our Mental Health Champions, Georgia and Oliver, attended a Mental Health Champion Seminar led by British Inline Skate Champion, Jenna Downing. During the day, they worked with children from other schools to find ways of supporting positive mental health and wellbeing for our pupils. Georgia and Oliver came away with lots of ideas which they shared with the Wellbeing Ambassadors.

The Mental Health Champions and Wellbeing Ambassadors run weekly Wellbeing Clubs at lunchtime focusing on The Five Ways of Wellbeing.

KS1 Club is held on a Wednesday and KS2 Club on a Thursday.


Role of a Wellbeing Ambassador

The role of the Wellbeing Ambassador at Wellfield Church School:

1) To demonstrate and help others work and play according to our Gospel Values
2) To welcome new children, staff and visitors to the school.
3) To be kind, caring and helpful towards others.
4) To act as a role model to other pupils.
5) To promote positive wellbeing within school.


The Wellbeing Ambassadors are joining forces with the School Council during the Summer Term to lead a very exciting initiative within school. Plans are underway for our very own Wellfield Wellbeing Week which will kickstart an ambitious new project to develop a permanent mindfulness area within school. The Ambassadors and Councillors will be sharing further details over the next few weeks but we are already buzzing about sharing our ideas with everyone! Keep a watch out for more details here...
