Exam Wellbeing

‘At The Crossley Heath school we fully understand the importance of supporting our students well-being through exams. We know that exams are a major source of worry and anxiety for young people. Whilst feeling anxious about important events is a natural response, we take numerous steps in our tutorials and lessons to support our students well-being at these times which includes help with their organisation, study timetables and advice of how to look after their own well-being.

It is important that students:

  • Are organised and well prepared for exams
  • Take a long term approach to study and revision rather than a short term cramming approach
  • Study sensibly and effectively without distraction
  • Exercise regularly
  • Limit screen time and exposure to social media
  • Get enough sleep and keep a sleep routine
  • Take time out to socialise and relax
  • Eat healthily
  • Talk to their friends and family
  • Practise mindfulness and relaxation techniques
  • Have a positive mind set, their best is good enough!

Here are some external resources that may help Students and Parents cope during these difficult times
