Wellbeing

At Sevenoaks Prep School we have a dedicated Wellbeing Team working alongside our Safeguarding and Pastoral Teams to support everyone in our school community.

Wellbeing is everyone’s business at Sevenoaks Prep School, and we strive to promote, develop, equip and prepare healthy learners for life, and support all within the community by:

“empowering everybody to achieve their potential by giving them the tools to cope with life’s challenges.”

We are committed to making it our mission to promote resilience, positive wellbeing and mental health for all our pupils, parents, carers and staff.

We have appointed a Wellbeing Team (James Aschcroft, Katherine Hougham and Lauren Hosford ) and Year 8 Wellbeing Champions. We are currently working towards The Wellbeing Award for Schools (WAS) to allow us to reflect on our current provision and to celebrate our achievements.
