Cognita Be Well

Wellbeing Manifesto

A Cognita education is based upon delivering academic excellence, character development and a global perspective to our students. We believe wellbeing is integral to these three elements.

As a global schools family, we have a responsibility to empower our students to understand what wellbeing is and how to maintain it, including the critical role of physical activity and exercise. We foster this understanding by:

  • providing a supportive culture, ethos and environment
  • supporting young people to develop the key character traits of metacognition, resilience and agency
  • building a partnership with parents and the wider community

In September 2019, we will hold our inaugural Global Be Well Day (see more, below). We’re working with a number of the world’s leading experts on wellbeing, including sleep scientist Dr Matthew Walker from the University of California at Berkeley (see video, right).

Global Be Well Day

On Friday 27th September 2019, our global schools family will celebrate Global Be Well Day. On this day, every Cognita school will collapse the curriculum in order to focus solely on wellbeing, with activities and events involving the entire school community of students, parents and staff.

Our schools focus on wellbeing throughout the year, but joining together in this dedicated day of recognition is an important statement of our collective commitment to wellbeing as a global schools family. It is an annual reminder of the priority we place on equipping young people with the confidence and resourcefulness that prepares them to grow, thrive and find their success in a fast-changing world.
