Kingsway Primary School

mental health support for children

We promote the 5 ways to wellbeing within school and encourage the children to reflect on their own mental wellbeing regularly. As well as this, we teach the statutory mental health content through our PSHE curriculum and raise awareness on dedicated national mental health dates. We also support the children’s mental health and wellbeing on a day to day basis and seek support from parents/carers and further professionals, should we need to.

Looking after and supporting your own child’s mental health and wellbeing at home is also extremely important to their cognitive development. Below are links for support and information:
