Mental Health & Wellbeing



At Kingsmead we are committed to ensure pupils are taught about physical health and mental wellbeing in order to support them to make good decisions about their own health and wellbeing. The aim is to enable them to look after their mental and physical wellbeing and recognise when they themselves or their classmates may be struggling.

Within school there are a wide variety of services and interventions available for pupils to maintain good emotional health.
