Kindness Heroes - Peer Wellbeing Ambassadors

Kindness Heroes


We currently have 15 Kindness Heroes, as part of our Peer Wellbeing Ambassadors Group. They are a team of children who have all received official training in Mental Health and Wellbeing from our local Compass Go Team.  They are here to help, support and advise all of their peers.


They are:

Class 2 - Sophie, Raina & Charlotte

Class 3 - Zaira, Isabella, Poppy, Brooke & Oscar

Class 4 - Rosie, Amelia, Ben, Ava, Sienna, Bertie & Frankie 


The Peer Wellbeing Ambassadors meet once a month with Mrs Barnes-Browne to discuss what has gone well and to discuss any worries or concerns that have arisen through discussion within their classes.


The Kindness Heroes have presented their own assembly to the rest of school, where they taught everyone some square breathing and looked at the five ways to wellbeing - connect, keep learning, be active, give and to take notice.  This was so well received by the rest of the school, especially the adults, who had a minute to practice their breathing techniques too!  


The group have now commenced “Feel Good Fridays” where they go round to each class to check in with any children that may want to talk to them over any concerns they have. The group try and assist where possible or signpost them to the right adult, if not.


The group also now work on a rota basis being "on duty" on the playground at all break times.  Kindness Heroes wear their own purple lanyards and their role is to ensure everyone is happy.  They also have a range of different wellbeing activities that they can run, including mindfulness, breathing activities and even joke telling!


What's coming up:


Friday Pastoral Drop-in Sessions for parents.

Mrs Barnes-Browne is available in The Nest every Friday morning from 8.30 am for anyone wishing to pop in for an informal discussion.  No appointment necessary.




Children's Mental Health Week - Collective Worship


The Kindness Heroes led our whole school Collective Worship on Monday 5th February. They talked to children about their role as Kindness Heroes and introduced this year's Children's Mental Health Week. They showed the school what help is available, and who they can turn to in school if they need some support.
