MEPA Academy - 5 Ways to Wellbeing


Wellbeing is at the heart of MEPA Academy. As a small school, we can offer enough time to be supportive, offer guidance, and care in a way which is unique to each student. We equip our students with a way of expressing their emotional needs without judgement.

As well as individual support, we look at the year and pinpoint certain times when the whole school may need wellbeing support. This may include how to beat exam stress, how to deal with anxiety at an audition, how to have a growth mindset and resilience when performing. This forms part of our Friday assemblies which focus on wellbeing which includes mindfulness.
