Pluckley Church of England Primary School ‘Enjoying, Learning and Achieving Together.’

TKAT Wellbeing Week


TKAT has launched their first-ever Wellbeing Week campaign this week: 21st - 25th June, to coincide with World Wellbeing Week. As a part of TKAT, Pluckley will be involved throughout the week.


The purpose of the campaign is to remind everyone in the TKAT community - pupils, families, staff, leaders - that their positive mental health and wellbeing is important. We want to keep everyone in the TKAT family healthy, safe and well.


There will be lots going on throughout the week: 


  • For every day of the Wellbeing Campaign, TKAT's schools will participate in "Pay It Forward" exercise, involving pupils, staff and parents. The idea is to support others by doing a good deed for someone - then that person should 'Pay it Forward' by doing a good deed for someone else and so on.
  • Our school will deliver a special assembly to their pupils which promotes awareness of the importance of keeping well.
  • TKAT's corporate Twitter feed @TKATAcademies will feature a a 'Wellbeing Tip Of The Day' which will link to an extended article on the same theme here on our corporate website. At the end of the week, all 5 tips will be re-created in a slideshow and published on Twitter. 
  • TKAT have designed an online Wellbeing Week Magazine  which will include lots of articles, support and advice on mental health and wellbeing. This will be distributed to all our schools and staff.
  • TKAT are hosting online mindfulness sessions for staff every morning and afternoon, to promote the benefits of daily meditation.
  • TKAT will also be hosting an online support group for parents or carers who are caring for someone with a mental health issue. (More details are available in the TKAT Wellbeing Week Magazine).


TKAT's CEO, Dr Karen Roberts said:


 "As a Trust, we recognise that the health and wellbeing of our staff and pupils is of utmost importance; we realise that, for our pupils, educational achievement happens when mental and physical health is optimised – and similarly, our colleagues give their best and reach their goals when they are rested, inspired and energised. 


Of course, positive mental health and wellbeing matters every day, but during this Wellbeing Week especially, we will be signposting to key sources of help and support. I personally will be joining in with the ‘Pay It Forward’ exercise and doing a good deed or two during the week!"
