Brentwood Park is happy to announce that the school is a KidsMatter Primary school! KidsMatter Primary is the first national mental health, promotion, prevention and early intervention initiative specifically developed for primary schools. It involves people who have significant influence on children’s lives– parents, families, carers, teachers and community groups-in making a positive difference for children’s mental health during this important developmental period. Our school will be focussing on four key areas to improve student mental health and wellbeing:
- A positive school community
- Social and emotional learning for students
- Parenting support and education
- Early intervention for students experiencing mental health difficulties
Our school will be looking to involve the whole school community in implementing KidsMatter, as well as building further relationships with health and community groups in our local area to support the mental health and wellbeing of our students.
