Kingsdale Foundation School understands that mental and social well-being is essential to overall health. Positive mental health allows people to cope effectively with stress and realise and work to their full potential whilst playing a meaningful role in their community. Research shows that the experiences we have in childhood can have lasting, measurable consequences later in life suggesting that fostering emotional well-being from the earliest stages of life helps provide the foundation for overall health and well-being in later life.
Social well-being is integral to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, the maintenance of which is part of the fabric of everyday life at Kingsdale School. The development of happy, confident young people, within a nurturing environment that promotes the development of positive healthy relationships, is something the school regards highly and works hard to achieve.
