'Reach for the Stars'

Well-being Wednesday Afternoons

 

On Wednesday afternoons, pupils at WPPA will focus on activities to improve their well-being.

 

We encourage pupils to be ‘screen-free’ and enjoy physical, creative or personally full-filling activities with their families 

 

There will be no live teaching or pre-recorded videos from teachers on a Wednesday afternoon. 

Teachers will be planning, preparing and assessing at this time and will be unavailable via Seesaw.
