Wellbeing and Socialisation Online

Socialisation is a key element of supporting student development regardless of age. Without social interactions, children are unable to build the relationship skills needed to learn and thrive. Children learn new ideas, values and beliefs through quality interactions and also learn to understand what is expected of them and learn to value the importance of their thoughts of feelings and those of others.

 

Due to the current period of virtual school (VSE) learning, opportunities to develop this capability could become scarce, impacting student wellbeing. The sense of connection and belonging is one that we aim to nurture at BSY, ensuring student wellbeing is a high priority within the virtual classroom. This is promoted in several ways. 

 

Early Years students already have personal, social and emotional development (PSED) activities embedded within their day. They have live sessions where topics include: kindness, helping others, what do we like about ourselves, what we can do with our emotions and how to build relationships. This enables our youngest students to articulate their feelings in a safe, secure space, similar to how they would in school.

Key Stage 1 (years 1 and 2) students start their day with emoji check-ins. Throughout the day there are social meets, where students bring snacks or toys and together, take part in a range of activities. There are also PSHE choice boards that include activities such as yoga, meditation, mindfulness, origami, painting and building. These social sessions help maintain friendships and develop new social connections.

Key Stage 2 years 3 to 6) children have access to mindfulness sessions where they learn coping techniques to support them if they are feeling overwhelmed, anxious or unable to channel their emotions. These range from informal, child led discussions, learning breathing techniques or following meditations originating from the Global Campus. It is highly important that ALL children across the key stages are able to share the fun times too. Whether that is a Virtual Birthday Party, Halloween disco or a remote trip to a museum which links to units of inquiry all assists the support of student wellbeing and social skills.

Socialising in Secondary is also viewed with high importance with Wednesday afternoons dedicated to student wellbeing. These sessions include a wide range of House activities where students create house anthems, prepare for debates or competitions with an aim to promote student agency and alliance. All students, regardless of age are encouraged to socialise within year groups either by taking part in quizzes or daily socials, additional PE activities, or a weekly workout.

There is a vibrant student council ensuring student voices are heard within the school and finally, After School Clubs (ASCs), which enables students across the year groups to link up, learn and most importantly socialise and have fun! Students are actively involved in developing their wellbeing.

We are fortunate to have the Global Campus as a resource and guidance tool during these remote times as there is an abundance of wellbeing and motivational content available for students. Being able to access this resource enables all students to develop their understanding of how they can connect with fellow students around the world.

A family at BSY can be assured that the wellbeing and need for socialising in an online environment for each and every child is a key driver in classrooms.
