Mental Health and Wellbeing
At Kymbrook Primary we believe that good mental health and well-being goes hand in hand with learning. Our aim is to give our pupils the skills and strategies needed for life-long good mental health.
We have Well-Being Ambassadors who work closely with Mrs Augustine and Mrs Smith to promote a healthy and happy school. This year our ambassadors are:
Bea, Beth, Willow and Sienna
We are visited weekly by Bedford Blues Rugby Club as part of their community commitment towards supporting local schools. Matt visits us weekly to provide the following:
Mentoring Scheme: Help support students who have behavioural challenges or need a male role model outside the classroom to help engagement.Wellbeing is at the core of the mentoring scheme.
Lunchtime Clubs: They oversee and manage playground games in a safe environment. Encourage children to be active at lunch and promote a healthy atmosphere through team games
Rugby & Reading: This engages children in the benefits of reading, whilst participating in sport.It improves confidence, engagement, behaviour and proves a strong link between classroom and values of sport.
In addition, we believe in Growth Mindset and want our children to feel that 'School is a safe place to make mistakes.'
