Why choose One Education for OneWellbeing

We are committed to making positive contributions to the quality of education through:
1) helping children and young people feel positive and ready for learning
2) helping parents develop their own and child’s wellbeing
3) Giving teaching staff development opportunities to enhance their knowledge base and approaches
4) Staff...

Thanks again for your excellent wellbeing session. It was really insightful and thought-provoking. It has generated many ideas here as to ways to improve our sense of wellbeing. It gave a really positive and caring start to the school year. Many staff have commented on how good the session was and how it has made them look at their own ways of thinking and strategies for coping.
