Wellbeing and Mental Health
These are strange and sometimes challenging times indeed. We know that the children may have had hugely different experiences during school closures and the UK lockdown.
We want to continue to support you and your child, both in school and after the school gates close at 3pm. To help with this, we have compiled a number of resources for you to access to support wellness and mental health.
Now, more than ever, we need to reassure our children that it is okay to not be okay. That sharing their worries is a healthy and important thing to do.
We hope that these links provide useful:
