Personal Development

What is Personal Development?

Personal development plays a big part of our school ethos. It is reflected in our school motto of 'Be the best you can be'. We want every child to leave Kingfisher as confident, knowledgeable individuals who are resilient, determined and ready for the next stage of their learning, and have the skills necessary to contribute to positively in society.


At Kingfisher, our aim is to teach children how to navigate through life safely, happily and healthily. We teach children about the world around them, relationships, emotions and health, as well as give them transferable skills to help with life. 

Emergency First Aid Training - KS2

RNLI and Water Safety

Water safety workshops were enjoyed by all classes in November as Tony, from the RNLI, came into Kingfisher to deliver very important messages about water safety at the beach and in general. Ensuring our pupils are equipped with the skills and knowledge they need to keep themselves safe is something we are fully committed to doing.

RSPCA Workshops

Over two days in October, the RSPCA visited Kingfisher to offer advice on animal safety and how we can protect our pets and animals during bonfire night. Children learned about stress relievers in pets and how they can help their pets cope at home. In addition to this, every child made a conker comet – the concept behind this was to create a natural firework, which if thrown, could one day grow into a tree and benefit the environment.

World Mental Health Day 2023

On Friday 13th October 2023, Kingfisher turned yellow to raise awareness of World Mental Health Day. The entire day was dedicated to pupils learning about the importance of mental health as well as physical health and what to do if they felt their mental health was suffering. Razzamatazz Theatre School led workshops which focussed on developing and understanding well-being; Mrs Streetin visited every class and led learning on how to regulate emotions. All pupils in these sessions created their own ‘calming bottle’ which they took home. Mrs Francis led activities which were adapted from her Drawing & Talking therapy sessions and our Well-being champions across KS2 led sessions in Yr3/4/5/6.
