Well Being

Well Being

Well Being is at the heart of everything we do in Waun Wen. We understand that if you are not feeling your best you are not going to be able to learn effectively. 


Every morning, each class checks in using "The Colour Monster" book written by Anna Llenas, and the children are able to change their emotion throughout the day as different things happen to them. 


All staff have been trained in the Just Right State programme and this programme looks at the use of sensory activities and foods, to help children learn how to self-regulate their emotional states and behaviour. It also uses cartoon characters called ‘The Scared Gang’ that represent the different survival patterns of behaviour. The different characters tell the children how they react to situations and what each of them does to achieve the ‘Just Right State’. The goal of the programme is to enable children to become more emotionally aware of themselves and others, to give them simple tools to enable them to self-regulate and achieve the just right state, whether it is to engage in academic learning, interacting with their peers, or to be able to get a good night’s sleep.

Trauma Informed Schools


2 members of staff are Trauma Informed Schools Practitioners and our staff have all been trained in understanding trauma in childhood. Some children need a little bit more support than others and will work with staff on activities designed for them to improve their wellbeing and self-esteem.
