Well Being at Wiseman

Well Being at Wiseman Enrichment Day – Thursday 7th July, 2016

In September 2015 we integrated our PSHE, Citizenship and Careers curriculum to create a new Well Being at Wiseman programme.  We believe the programme creates outstanding provision for your child in line with statutory and diocesan guidelines, to prepare your child for life outside Cardinal Wiseman.  The programme is delivered via: lessons: tutor time: assemblies: extra-curricular and enrichment activities and is facilitated by our own staff and other professionals from external agencies.  As we approach the end of the summer term, our Well Being at Wiseman day will complete the programme for this academic year.
On Thursday 7th July, 2016, your child will not follow their existing Week 1 Thursday timetable but will have a range of different activities instead.
