Health & Wellbeing at UoB School
Being well together…
All of us can feel overwhelmed at times, especially with the current situation we’re in. Looking after ourselves physically can not only benefit our bodies and make us healthier, it can also have a great impact upon our mental wellbeing.
On this page we will share ways in which we can all stay active and healthy, especially when we’re spending more time indoors than usual.
If you need to talk to someone at school, contact your Pupil Pastoral Manager.
