Wellbeing Information

SEEKING SUPPORT 

Support for students is available from your form tutor, your teacher, your house teams or the safeguarding team. If you feel unable to speak to the safeguarding team directly, then email them on safeguarding@robertnapier.org.uk.  

TAKING GOOD CARE OF YOURSELF

​Whilst we provide you with support through Citizenship lessons and form time, it is also important that you look after your own wellbeing.

​Medway Children Services have provided advice on managing your time and stress levels and alongside this we have collated some helpful apps which will advise and help you to look after your health and your well-being. Whatever works for you – some of you may have your own routines or apps you have on your phone. This is not an exhaustive list, but these have worked for other students in the past.

​Useful strategies to relax:

​Listening to music – Sing!

  • Watching a good film and laughing out loud!
  • Box sets!
  • Board games
  • Keeping a diary
  • Eating healthily and exercise outdoors where possible
  • Mindfulness breathing every day for 10 minutes: “Breathe in for 7 and out for 11”
  • Follow a guided meditation online to help relax
  • Gym work out / Yoga (See Below For Free Yoga Exercises)
  • Study hard, help others and rest!
