The Duchess Goes To School

Today The Duchess of Cambridge paid a visit to Pegasus Primary School in Oxford.

During her visit, Catherine learned about the work of the charity Family Links.

She also was able to see how Family Links works with schools across the country to help both children and parents with their emotional health and well-being, focusing on early intervention.

Family Links works to enable children, parents, families, schools and workplaces to make positive emotional health a top priority, by presenting innovative, high-quality training to health and social care services, third sector organisations, schools and universities.

The charity has what they call a Nurturing Programme, which supports all of their work and designed to equip adults and children with the understanding, skills and capacity to lead emotionally healthy lives, develop resilience, empathy, self-esteem and support positive relationships.

During the visit, the Duchess met parents to learn more about how their families have overcome challenges with the support of Family Links.

Catherine joined a Year Two class during ‘Circle Time.’ This activity session encouraged children to share their thoughts on a variety of topics, including how to help a classmate if bullied, or how to cope with a stressful situation.

HRH then attended a roundtable discussion with Family Links on the importance of supporting families during a child’s early years.

Over the weekend Emily Andrews of The Sun dropped an exclusive reporting The Duchess of Cambridge is due on St George’s Day, 23 April.

On Wednesday, The Duchess of Cambridge will officially open the new headquarters of children’s mental health charity Place2Be in London.
