Duchess of Cambridge to visit Pegasus Primary School
We are very excited to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge will be visiting Pegasus Primary School on 6th March to learn more about the work we do. Her Royal Highness will see how we work closely with schools nationwide to support both children and parents with their emotional health and wellbeing, with an emphasis on early intervention.
At Pegasus Primary School, we have completely integrated Emotional Health support into children’s education, with the entire family supported through a range of workshops and activity sessions. Parents are offered the opportunity to attend our ten-week Nurturing Programme, and children have weekly circle times throughout the school year. This is all underpinned by a whole school approach where everyone from the caretaker to the Headteacher is trained in the Family Links approach.
During the visit, The Duchess will:
- Meet parents to hear more about how their families have overcome challenges with the support of Family Links.
- Join a ‘Circle Time’, an activity session which encourages pupils to share their thoughts on a range of topics, including how to support a classmate if they are being bullied, or how to cope with a stressful situation.
- Attend a roundtable discussion with Family Links on the importance of supporting families during a child’s early years.
You'll be able to follow the visit on our and Kensington Palace's twitter feeds on the day!
