In such a fast past world, we need to take a deliberate and planned approach to wellness. This week I have personally experienced wellness in action and feel very proud of the safe and nurturing environment Regents has created;
Here are some examples of how Regents has demonstrated this commitment to wellness in our first two weeks of term:
Safeguarding our children certification: We have very high expectations of all of our teachers and employees when it comes to Safeguarding. 100% of our teaching staff have renewed their Safeguarding and Duty of Care certification with Educare https://www.educare.co.uk
Safeguarding our children workshops: All teaching and Administration staff have participated in workshops here at Regents with our Safeguarding Officer Ms Karyn Walton.
Review of Evacuation Procedures: Our Senior Leadership Team have reviewed and updated all evacuation procedures and held briefings with our team of educators.
Fire Drill: The whole school from Pre-Nursery to Diploma carried out a Fire drill and safely and quickly evacuated all school buildings.
Year 13 Outdoor Education Trip to Rayong & Koh Thalu: Such a fabulous idyllic location for a Year 13s to write their personal statements for University applications, carry out the IB Diploma Group 4 Projects and mentally prepare for their final year together as a cohort.
Assemblies across the School: From Early Primary to Secondary, students have participated in inspirational assemblies to set the tone for the year ahead, celebrate success and cultivate a positive school culture.
Induction of new students & families: New students often experience a rollercoaster of emotions; our experienced pastoral team have ensured each new student is adapting and adjusting to life at Regents.
Teacher fitness: Teachers have enjoyed the school facilities after school and voluntarily participated in a wide range of activities ranging from Football, Touch Rugby, Fitness & Badminton. Keeping healthy and bonding as a team.
Community partners: Regents gives back and has a strong commitment to our Community Partners. Plans and programmes are being consolidated.
Meet the Teacher Meetings throughout Primary: Establishing open, respectful relationships and channels of communication. Teachers and parents have had the opportunity to meet this week and learn more about the year ahead. Parent representatives have come forward for our Parent Supporters Group (PSG) to help create a strong connection between home and school.
Launch of Co-Curricular activities: Such a range of activities and opportunity for our children! Reaching out to nurture the mind and body.
Regents is a well-established school, supported by Nord Anglia Education. We have high standards, expectations and practices that allows your child to flourish in a balanced, holistic and safe environment with so much opportunity. The school culture and ethos we create in these first few weeks will set the scene, tone and foundations for a successful year of learning.
Make sure you practice wellness at home too and take a deliberate step and effort to have a healthy mind and body!
