Kensington Primary School

Wellbeing

At Kensington, our vision is of a place where everyone loves to be. Our wellbeing is a big part of this as it affects how we relate, interact, learn and grow. Ultimately, the day-to-day ethos and approach we have at our school has an impact on the well-being of all of us, therefore at Kensington we strive to promote well-being through some of our strategic goals. The goals that promote wellbeing are; that we be the best we can be, we are all in this together and that we take care of ourselves and each other.

The five ways to well-being are:

Connect - connect with people around you.

Be active - find an activity that you enjoy and make it a part of your life.

Keep Learning - learning new skills can give you a sense of achievement and a new confidence.

Give to others – give to those in need or even giving a smile, a thank you or a kind word.

Be mindful - be more aware of the present moment, including your thoughts and feelings, your body and the world around you.
