We are very proud of our achievements as a school and they reflect the excellent standards of education and commitment to providing the best opportunities for our children.
Kingmoor Nursery and Infant School are the first Cumbrian Primary School to have been awarded a Gold standard for its outstanding mental health and wellbeing provision.
Kingmoor Nursery and Infant School provides a wide range of activities to boost the wellbeing of pupils and staff, including working with well-being coaches, a mental health and well-being driven curriculum, supporting other schools and working closely with social services and the NHS's Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services.
The school has also extensively focused on supporting staff mental health and providing its families with support from the school and external agencies in order to positively benefit teaching and learning. We have adapted our curriculum and invested in additional, specialist support to address the needs of our children particularly where COVID has had a negative impact.
"The AcSEED Initiative"
Kingmoor Nursery and Infant school are delighted to be the first school in Cumbria to have been awarded The AcSEED Award. To achieve this prestigious award the school had to complete an assessment during which the assessors recognised a particularly high number of strengths. This award recognised the whole school commitment to the mental Health and wellbeing of both staff and pupils. Mrs Corfield, Headteacher said “The AcSEED review team were particularly impressed with the fact that mental health is embedded in all aspects of school life from school governors to communications with parents and the curriculum itself. Achieving this award is testimony to the hard work and determination of staff to support children’s wellbeing especially in the current circumstances”. The school’s mental health lead, Miss hall said “In school we have trained adult and youth first aiders, staff and pupils’ have access to a range of professional Mental Health & Wellbeing Support. We pride ourselves in how well-being is promoted across our whole curriculum”. We hope that achieving the AcSEED accreditation provides confidence to current and prospective parents and pupils that our school is well equipped to support the emotional wellbeing and mental health of our pupils.
