Your gender identity is how you describe your gender. For example, you might say you are a woman, non-binary, transgender, a man, gender fluid, or something different. Your gender identity is your decision and is also about how you want others to treat you - for example, how you want people refer to you (‘she’, ‘him’, ‘they’ or something else).

What does Wellbeing mean?!


Wellbeing [ noun ] –  the state of being comfortable, healthy or happy


This is what the Oxford English Dictionary defines as wellbeing, but what does that actually mean?  The short answer is… well, there is no short answer!  What one person feels is their perfect state of wellbeing may be completely different from another person.  This stands to reason as we all have different goals, ambitions and personalities.


The meaning of wellbeing is multidimensional


An overall sense of wellness will not be achieved without having a balance in these key elements:



  • Physical. This includes lifestyle choices that affect the functioning of our bodies. What we eat and how active we are will affect our physical wellbeing.

  • Emotional or psychological. This is our ability to cope with everyday life and reflects how we think and feel about ourselves.

  • Social.  This is the extent that we feel a sense of belonging and social inclusion. The way we communicate with others, our relationships, values, beliefs, lifestyles and traditions are all important factors of social wellbeing.

  • Spiritual. This is the ability to experience and integrate meaning and purpose in life. Achieved through being connected to our inner self, to nature or even a greater power.

  • Intellectual. It is important to gain and maintain intellectual wellness as it helps us to expand our knowledge and skills in order to live an enjoyable and successful life.

  • Economic. Economic wellness, in short, is our ability to meet our basic needs and feel a sense of security.


The world we live in is complex. Understanding the requirement of wellness and the factors that influence this state, whether as an individual, community or nation, helps us to work together to improve the quality of our lifestyles

If you are worried and need to tell someone, we are still here for you. You can either:

  • email to hear4u@priestlands.hants.sch.uk (If its urgent, include a phone number we can use to call you) emails will be monitored during normal school hours 08:45am - 3:15pm

OR

  • Phone the school (01590 677033) leave a message and someone will call you back and help you.
