Mental Health and Well-being

As a healthy school we promote the health and well-being of all our pupils in school. We fully understand the role we have to help children to succeed and support them to be resilient and mentally healthy. We are aware that children can experience a range of events both happy and sad throughout their time at school. Staff at school are sensitive and skilled at working with children who may have experienced loss or separation, life changes such as moving house, a birth of a sibling and events of a traumatic nature.

At Kingston Park we have a range of support that children and families can access.   We aim to work closely with parents, carers and other professionals to ensure we provide timely interventions to meet mental health needs.

 

If you have a concern please speak to your child’s class teacher in the first instance.   Alternatively you might like to read the information pages about our School Counselling Service and Our Student and Family Support Worker.
