TES Awards: Wellbeing and mental health
We are delighted to announce we have been shortlisted for the TES Wellbeing and Mental Health Award 2020.
The most outstanding individuals and institutions that the education sector has to offer have been recognised in the shortlist for the Tes Schools Awards 2020.
It's been revealed that Kensington Primary has been shortlisted for the Wellbeing and Mental Health award.
Tes editor Ann Mroz said: “It is always a highlight of the education calendar to see the best ideas and people lauded at the Tes Schools Awards. But this year, it felt more important than ever to run an event that showcased and celebrated the hard work that teachers and school staff do for children and their local community every single day. This has been one of the most difficult years in education, but – as ever – teachers continue to rise to the challenge.
"We had a record number of entries this year and the standard was very high, so all those shortlisted should be very proud: it's an extraordinary achievement to be on this shortlist."
Ben Levinson, Head Teacher, said: "We are so proud to be shortlisted. To now be in the running for three National Awards, particularly at this most challenging time, is a real boost for the whole community. The wellbeing and mental health of our children, staff and parents has always been a priority for us. The current pandemic has made this even more crucial."
The announcement comes shortly after it was announced that Kensington had won two Pearson Silver Awards - Primary School of the Year and Excellence in Special Educational Needs - and is in the running to win the overall Gold Award in both.
Sadly the awards night will not be held in person this year as planned. For the very first time, award winners will be announced at a virtual ceremony on Friday 13 November 2020.
