Mental Health Focus Days and Weeks

Kingsway's School Development Plan is referred to as CHAMPS: The "H" component of this plan stands for HEALTH with a specific focus on Mental Health. Whilst awareness of well-being is embedded in everyday school life at Kingsway, we also have days and weeks when we focus on specific aspects of mental health awareness.

Mental Health Focus 2020-21

We celebrated Mental Health Day on 7th October 2020 by wearing something yellow. 

During the 16th - 20th November, the children at  Kingsway took part in Anti-Bullying Week! We launched the week, along hundreds of other schools, with "Odd Socks Day", to celebrate differences and to raise awareness of bullying. The children then went on to complete a variety of informative activities related to bullying. We had lots of fun and learnt lots about bullying, as well as how we should be treating each other everyday.

You can look at some of the activities we have undertaken this year in the galleries below.

Children's Mental Health Week 2019-20

 Children's Mental Health Week took place 3rd to 7th February 2020. Each class chose a mental-health related issue and used their Design Technology skills to present their concept. The week culminated in an exhibition to celebrate everyone's work and raise awareness. Thank you to all those parents/carers who attended this event.
