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. With this in mind we have a resident mental health ambassador, Amy Phillips, who works across the Federation to deliver workshops, host 'Chat Club' and provide general support and strategies to those in need.
We are also visited 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.'
