Hi, my name is Brenda Collins but everyone calls me Bren. I am a Senior Teaching Assistant working in Key stage 4. I will be supporting students in Self-esteem and Self-care enrichment.

Self-esteem and Self-care enrichment

A child’s self-esteem will be determined by the conditional acceptance that he or she receives from others – and the unconditional acceptance that he or she receives from us.

Social: I aim to build friendships across both sites.
Competence: For those students who wish, Teach Hair and beauty skills.
Physical: Feeling attractive builds self-esteem.

Self-care is necessary for a number of reasons.
It increases your sense of self-love, allowing you to appreciate and accept yourself for who you are.
It promotes feelings of calm and relaxation, serving as a way to refocus and come back to your daily life refreshed and ready to take on anything.
It improves both physical and mental health by reducing the effects of prolonged stress on your mind and body.
This is where the Beauty Salon on site come in, by teaching the students skills they will be able to apply those skills to themselves and each other.
