At KPJS we feel it is important that children feel listened to. Pupil are encouraged to share their worries at the earliest possible opportunity so they don’t turn into big scary worries!
We understand that it can be difficult for children to approach an adult directly so we have a worry box that pupils can use to ask for help. The worry box is located outside Miss Mason’s room. Pupils can write down their name and class on a piece of paper, pop it in the worry box and Miss Mason will speak to them at playtime or lunchtime.
Young carers are children who help look after a member of the family who
is sick, disabled or has mental health problems, or is misusing drugs or
alcohol. At Kenmore Park Junior school we offer support to these children
through our Young Carers lunchtime club.
Alongside Harrow Young carers we ensure that our children have a safe, welcoming environment that allows them to take a break from their caring responsibilities, spend time with other young carers and share experiences. If you would like more information or you feel your child may be a young carer, please contact Miss Mason (Pastoral Manager)
The Forest School movement has been growing in popularity in the UK over recent years. The idea originally comes from a Scandinavian model of outdoor learning. The benefits of Forest School have been identified as helping to improve children’s confidence and wellbeing as well as improving social skills. Forest School also represents a belief that children should have the opportunity to be more physically involved in their environment and be more active and healthy.
