Emotional Health & Mental Wellbeing

Why Well-Being Is Important at The British Muslim School

The British Muslim School aspires to be an ‘employer of choice’. Our aim is to support each and every member of staff to foster a working environment that protects their physical and mental wellbeing. We believe all staff need time in their lives outside work, with their families and with their other interests, and to ensure they make time to sleep, eat and exercise properly. Our approach is to secure the best circumstances for our staff and our students as we believe this is the hallmark of a thriving secondary school.

Self Isolating & Dealing With Conflict (The Children’s Society)

With the current Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak and Government recommendations to limit social contact, many people will be spending more time at home than they are used to.

This may mean spending more time with family, carers or friends and this may create difficult situations, especially for those coping with pre-existing family problems.

The Children’s society asked one of their well-being practitioners to share her top tips for dealing conflict at home.

Here are some useful tips for keeping active whilst at home.
