Bedgrove Junior School

An Academy of the Great Learners Trust



Welcome to Bedgrove Junior School, where the wellbeing of our students, parents, and staff is at the heart of everything we do. At Bedgrove, we understand that a positive and nurturing environment plays a crucial role in fostering the holistic development of our school community.


Wellbeing for Students:

We believe that a child's emotional and mental wellbeing is fundamental to their academic success and overall happiness. Our dedicated Wellbeing Team, comprised of caring and experienced staff and governors, is committed to creating a supportive atmosphere where every child feels valued and secure. Through various initiatives and activities, we aim to instill resilience, confidence, and a love for learning in our students.


Wellbeing for Parents:

At Bedgrove Junior School, we recognise the vital role parents play in a child's wellbeing and education. We encourage open communication and collaboration between parents, teachers, and the school community. Our school provides resources and support for parents to navigate the challenges of parenting and to actively engage in their child's educational journey.


Wellbeing for Staff:

Our staff members are the backbone of our school, and we prioritise their wellbeing to ensure a positive working environment. The Wellbeing Team collaborates with our dedicated staff to provide opportunities for professional development, stress management, and a work-life balance. By fostering a culture of support, we aim to empower all staff members to provide the best possible learning experience for our students.


Wellbeing Teams:

Bedgrove Junior School is proud to have not one but two dedicated Wellbeing Teams. The first is composed of a diverse group of staff and governors, ensuring a holistic approach to addressing the wellbeing needs of the entire school community. The second team operates within our Pupil Parliament, allowing students to actively participate in decisions related to their own wellbeing. This unique approach empowers our students and gives them a voice in shaping their school experience.


Holistic Approach:

We understand that wellbeing encompasses physical, mental, and emotional aspects. That's why our school adopts a holistic approach to wellbeing, integrating well-being initiatives into both the academic and extracurricular aspects of school life. From mindfulness activities to physical education, we strive to create an environment that nurtures every aspect of a child's development.


At Bedgrove Junior School, we believe that a focus on wellbeing creates a foundation for academic success, positive relationships, and lifelong learning. By working together as a community, we ensure that our students, parents, and staff thrive in a supportive and enriching environment. Together, we build a brighter future for all.

The Wellbeing Award for Schools

We are delighted to share with our school community that Bedgrove Junior School is actively working towards achieving the prestigious Wellbeing Award for Schools, granted by the National Children's Bureau. This initiative reflects our commitment to prioritising the wellbeing of our students, parents, and staff members.

What is the Wellbeing Award for Schools?

The Wellbeing Award for Schools, developed by the National Children's Bureau, is a nationally recognised accreditation that acknowledges and celebrates schools committed to promoting the emotional and mental wellbeing of their entire community. This award is a testament to a school's dedication to creating a positive and supportive environment for learning and personal development.


Why Pursue the Wellbeing Award?

At Bedgrove Junior School, we believe that a focus on wellbeing is fundamental to creating a thriving and successful learning environment. Pursuing the Wellbeing Award aligns with our commitment to providing the best possible educational experience for our students, fostering positive relationships, and supporting the holistic development of each individual.


Our Wellbeing Journey:

To achieve the Wellbeing Award for Schools, we have established a dedicated Wellbeing Team consisting of staff, governors, and students. This team is actively engaged in a comprehensive review of our current practices, policies, and initiatives related to wellbeing. We are working collaboratively to identify areas for improvement and to implement positive changes that will benefit the entire school community.


Involving the Whole Community:

We understand that wellbeing is a collective effort, and we actively involve our students, parents, and staff in this important journey. We value the input and perspectives of our community members and encourage open communication to ensure that the initiatives we implement are meaningful and effective.


What's Next?

As we progress on our journey towards the Wellbeing Award for Schools, we will keep our school community informed and engaged. We are excited about the positive impact this endeavor will have on the overall wellbeing of everyone at Bedgrove Junior School.


Thank you for your continued support as we work together to create a nurturing, supportive, and thriving learning environment for our students. We look forward to celebrating our achievements on this exciting wellbeing journey.
