What does Kapow Primary’s Wellbeing scheme cover?
Kapow Primary’s Wellbeing scheme is designed to guide your class through five different wellbeing strands: Discover, Take notice, Connect, Give, and Move. Each strand is progressive and builds on prior knowledge and skills, with age-appropriate lessons from Reception to year 6. The scheme includes coverage of statutory RSE objectives, and there are teacher videos available for every strand. Additionally, supporting activities are provided to reinforce learning.
This document highlights the Wellbeing lessons that cover the statutory Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education, as published by the Department for Education.

Our programme focuses on improving pupil well-being, but we also recognise the importance of staff well-being. Check out our blog for strategies to create a productive and thriving learning environment for all.Read more
Why is wellbeing in the primary school important?
Never before has there been such an emphasis on wellbeing within the primary school offering. Teachers, leaders and outside bodies are realising the impact that good overall wellbeing has on children’s outcomes, and are making concerted efforts to develop this within their curricula.
Although rates of mental ill health tend to rise as children grow older, it’s crucial to provide early intervention to give them the best possible start in life. Primary schools are instrumental in supporting children’s mental health by educating them about the skills they need to identify and manage their emotions while providing necessary support for those facing difficulties.
The Ofsted framework now requires inspectors to assess and report on pupils’ mental health and wellbeing, including aspects such as resilience, confidence, independence, and maintaining mental health.
