Wellbeing department at JPS

The wellbeing department works to promote and protect the social and emotional wellbeing of all JPS pupils, families and staff. We aim to work proactively and reactively, to ensure sound emotional development, which in turn allows pupils to flourish within the classroom. The values we promote for all our community of students, staff and parents are based on the PERMA model of positive psychology applied to education. Our core values are to promote a positive community, positive emotions, positive health, positive relationships, positive achievement and positive balance.

The wellbeing department is staffed by three part-time psychologists. They offer individual consultations, small group interventions, class support as well as whole school wellbeing education.
