“Ensuring the happiness and safety of all our pupils has always been core to what we do at Wells Cathedral School. We want all our pupils to be happy and successful, but in that order. That is why we strive to ensure our pastoral care is pupil-centred and all-embracing.
“Recently, increasing focus has been given to the wellbeing of all school pupils, particularly with regard to their mental health. As a society, we have become much more attuned to the reality that a person’s mental wellbeing is just as important as their physical wellbeing.
“We are proud at Wells of the way we promote healthy lifestyles for our pupils, and of the vision we already have in place to help ensure pupils are well-cared for, whatever their particular needs or whenever they might encounter difficulties. Please see details of some of our initiatives below…”

We have received Optimus Education’s prestigious Wellbeing Award. Developed in partnership with the National Children’s Bureau (NCB), the award is granted to schools who are able to demonstrate that they have made significant changes to their long-term wellbeing culture for pupils, parents and staff.
The school’s well-being initiatives stand out for their clarity of purpose and tangible impact. Driven by a genuine desire to see children thrive, these initiatives lay a strong foundation for pupils’ future lives.
