At Knighton Mead Primary Academy, we aim to promote positive mental health and well-being for our whole school community (children, staff, parents and carers), and recognise how important mental health and emotional well-being are to our lives in just the same way as physical health. We recognise that children’s mental health is a crucial factor in their overall well-being and can affect their learning and achievement.
Throughout life many of us will experience challenges that can increase our vulnerability and lead us to requiring additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play. Good mental health allows our children to develop their resilience to cope with whatever life throws at them and grow into well-rounded, healthy adults.
Here in school, there are many ways we support our children’s health and well-being. We also work closely with our families to ensure that they have access to support networks where necessary. If you require support regarding mental health and wellbeing, please speak to Rebecca Smith (Principal) or Bina Chudasama (Wellbeing Advocate) via our front office, telephone or email.
On this page, you will find a variety of services that offer support locally, nationally and online.
