The Hub

We are very fortunate to have a ‘Hub’ (nurture unit) at Watcombe School. The Hub focuses on how to be healthy, safe, enjoy and achieve. Pupils’ self-esteem and social and emotional well-being is central to their ability to fulfil their academic, social and emotional potential.  The programmes build on individual and group trust, confidentiality and peer/group support.

The following skills learned include:

  • listening to others, and playing and working together
  • sharing opinions on things that matter to them
  • recognising, naming and dealing with their feelings in a positive way
  • recognising choices they can make, and the difference between right and wrong
  • recognising that they belong to various groups and communities, such as family and school
  • understanding how their behaviour affects others
  • identifying and respecting each other
