Welcome to our Kenton Wellbeing webpage!
At Kenton School we aim to support our children and young people with their wellbeing and mental health needs. We work hard as a team to create an environment which fosters positive mental health and wellbeing among our pupils, promotes resilience, and embraces a culture where we look after and support one another.
We are excited to announce that we have pioneered two new roles in Kenton School. Mr Allan (Year Leader) and Miss Fox (Humanities Teacher) have recently been appointed as Mental Health Advocates. This is an exciting time as we look to launch our Wellbeing Provision in school.
Below are some useful websites and apps that you can access to support with your wellbeing. However please keep checking this webpage, take part in Form Time/PD activities and assemblies and watch out for some new Social Media pages dedicated to Wellbeing.
If you have immediate concerns about your wellbeing or the wellbeing of a friend please email email@example.com, or speak to your Form Tutor, Year Leader or any member of staff.
