Wellbeing at Home

Whilst HAB is closed, it’s very important for you to check in with your mental health and wellbeing, especially during periods where you may be asked to self-isolate.

Use the resources below to help you check in with how you are feeling and use the suggested apps and organisations for support.

The email safeguarding@harrisbermondsey.org.uk will also be checked by the HAB safeguarding team between the hours of 8.30am and 3.00pm during term time if you are worried and need to speak with us.


Wellbeing Wednesdays

We are introducing Wellbeing Wednesdays. Each Wednesday, your daughter will receive an email with a range of enjoyable enrichment activities to do, such as art tutorials, singing lessons, virtual museum tours, cooking tutorials, exercise classes and reading resources.

These tasks don’t require you to do anything. They are self-directed, meaning your daughter can do them on her own. They will also be family friendly, so you may want to have your daughter do them with siblings or even as a whole family with you.

All tasks are optional, so your daughter can decide what she wishes to spend her time on, or you can agree this with her.

Your daughter isn’t expected to do school work on Wellbeing Wednesdays, though she can if she wants to. Her teachers won’t be emailing her though.

We hope you and your daughters will really enjoy this opportunity for some fun and some enriching experiences, which would normally form a very important part of our school life at HAB and which we know are good for girls mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
