All Children Can Achieve

Mr. Green

“Switch modes.

Break up your school life with your home life. When you get back from school create some personal time where you do 20-30mins of relaxing, switching off from the stresses of the day. Reading, listening to music, changing into fresh clothes, having a snack.

This is about clearing your head and changing into a home life mode. You can then approach your evening plans clearly.

This prepares pupils for a healthy work/life balance and it leaves some of the negativity of a bad day at the door. Pupils are usually more relaxed after this downtime to discuss their day more openly, but also with more accurate reflections. A good model could be”
