The wellbeing of staff, pupils and parents is at the heart of everything we do at Kings Rise Academy. Our team of staff work closely with our students and their families to offer a wealth of support wherever needed. Mental Health is promoted across school and covered in our PSHE curriculum, workshops with Cherished, other external providers, assemblies and focus weeks throughout the year.

We pride ourselves on establishing good relationships with parents / carers. We support all and signpost families for additional support for a whole host of additional support including advice for housing, finance, food, respite when the need arises.

As previously shared, over the last eighteen months, we have been working towards the 'Well Being Award for schools'. We are delighted to share that in December 2022 we were successful in achieving the award.
