Repton Family of Schools implements enhanced mental well-being provisions

Teachers and staff are encouraged to embed well-being into learning wherever possible 

Dubai, June 12, 2023: The Repton Family of Schools in the UAE (RFS) has launched a new initiative to place mental well-being at the forefront across all facets of its curriculum and school year groups. 

Repton Dubai and Repton Al Barsha have incorporated the Positive Emotion, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning and Accomplishment (PERMA) model within its curricula to measure and improve student well-being, enticing students’ curiosity to learn in a safe and nurturing environment. Both schools have also been rated ‘Very High’ for students’ well-being provisions as per the inaugural mental well-being report from the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA). 

The schools analyse data from the Pupil Attitudes to School and Self (PASS) survey to create personalised well-being plans that support students to foster self-care strategies. Reptonians can also access school resources such as the well-being centre or attain support from the school counsellor. 

Repton Dubai has also launched the Reptonic Student Well-being Programme, which integrates comprehensive initiatives to nurture student character traits, encompassing a growth mindset and developing key values such as grit, resilience and perseverance. Supporting student’s stress management and academic pressure, the school regularly evaluates its academic calendar to ensure students do not feel overburdened with subject courses. Repton Dubai’s membership of the National Online Safety group also yields helpful resources and guidance on Internet safety and healthy online behaviour.  

Repton Al Barsha regularly hosts parent webinars on topics such as understanding the adolescent brain, which can help parents to better understand the challenges that their children may be facing. Repton Al Barsha has also integrated a ‘No Tech Tuesday’ for staff to focus on teaching and learning, minimising emails sent in the school, and allowing for a more conducive learning environment. 

Furthermore, Repton Abu Dhabi offers a holistic approach to student welfare, embedding student well-being within the curriculum; strengthening the relationship between well-being and student learning outcomes.  

The Repton Family of Schools in the UAE offer a wide range of non-academic opportunities, including ECAs, Sports, Music and more, that enable students to decompress. The schools have also introduced ‘Well-being Weeks’ for staff, during which teachers are encouraged to participate in well-being activities such as padel tennis, meditation art classes and team potluck lunches.
