Wellbeing

Wellbeing is a key priority here at Reddish Vale High School.  We understand that when people feel their best, they perform their best and naturally become happier and more content individuals. In March 2022, we achieved the Wellbeing Award for Schools in recognition of our commitment to the wellbeing of the whole school community. 

The link to the award can be accessed here:

We regularly do surveys with our whole school community, so we know what we are doing well and those things we need to work on. On this section of the website you will find key information and sources of support, as well as be able to see the types of things we have been doing in school to support wellbeing.

Wellbeing Afternoon

On 12th February 2021, we hosted a Wellbeing Afternoon to allow all pupils, parents/carers and staff to enjoy an afternoon of 'You Time', completing activities in line with our You Time Bingo. Any pupils who completed all of their You Time Bingo activities during the afternoon and the half-term break which followed, were entered into a prize draw.
