KidsMatter

 

In 2014, Findon Primary signed a commitment to become a KidsMatter School.

 

KidsMatter is a flexible, whole-school approach to improving children’s mental health and wellbeing for primary schools. It is tailored to meet our schools' local needs.


We have begun our journey and undertaken a two to three year cyclical process in which we will plan and take action towards creating  a positive community; one that is founded on respectful relationships and a sense of belonging and inclusion and that promotes:

  • social and emotional learning (including evidence-based learning programs)

  • working in partnership with parents, carers and families

  • support for students who may be experiencing mental health difficulties.


    The work we do through KidsMatter builds on the work that we are already doing in these areas.

    All teaching staff have been trained in component one of KidsMatter – Building A Positive School Community.
