Our Well-Being Ambassadors have been busy learning about the Zones of Regulation that we use in School.  

The Zones provide strategies to teach pupils to become more aware of, and independent in, controlling their emotions and impulses, managing their sensory needs, and improving their ability to problem-solve conflicts.

Red Zone

is used to describe extremely heightened states of alertness and intense emotions. A person may be elated or experiencing anger, rage, devastation, or terror when in the Red Zone.

Yellow Zone

is also used to describe a heightened state of alertness and elevated emotions; however, one has more control when in the Yellow Zone. A person may be experiencing stress, frustration, anxiety, excitement, silliness, the wiggles, or nervousness when in the Yellow Zone.

Green Zone

is used to describe a calm state of alertness. A person may be described as happy, focused, content, or ready to learn when in the Green Zone. This is the zone where optimal learning occurs.

Blue Zone

is used to describe low states of alertness and down feelings such as when one feels sad, tired, sick, or bored.

Thank you Emily, Amelie , Georgia , Liana , Freya  and Isabel.
