Saint Kevin's College Wellbeing

Here at Saint Kevin's College, we offer a range of support strategies to maintain and improve wellbeing across all year groups.

What is the Positivity Pod?

  • The Positivity pod can accommodate individuals or small groups at any one time in an unconventional classroom.

  • It is designed to be a safe place that helps young people to cope with the demands of school and develop the skills and confidence need to participate in school life.

The pod centers around the ‘Six principles of Nurture Groups’, which are: 

  • Students’ learning is understood and responded to developmentally

  • The Pod offers a safe and predictable environment where adults are reliable and set firm boundaries

  • Students are valued and responded to as individuals to support their self-esteem

  • Language is a vital means of communication

  • All behaviour is communication

  • Transition is important

Which students does the Pod support?

The Nurture Room is open to all, however students who need extra help to settle and listen or build their self-confidence will benefit most from this resource.

Who manages the Pod Group?

The group is planned and delivered by Claire Conlin and Heidi McSheffrey, our Pod Co-coordinators. Claire and Heidi work closely with Mrs. MacDonald Pastoral Vice Principal and the rest of the school pastoral care team.

What is the Hive?

Louise focuses on mentoring KS4 and KS5 students on a one to one or in small groups,

in The Hive on building students strengths, confidence and self-esteem.

The Hive offers students a safe and confidential space to talk and explore their feelings and emotions around the pressures of home social and school life. It challenges the students on focusing on their strengths and gives them tools for building resilience and a positive mental attitude.

Staff Wellbeing

Our staff started out the school year with some team building activities in the Share Activity Centre. These activities 

included both water based and land, there where plenty of giggles and good conversation as they navigated the course - have a look at the day as it unfolded!

We also have monthly draws with staff members receiving some lovely prizes!
