Dear Parents and Carers
As a ‘Healthy School’ we constantly strive to promote positive mental health and emotional well-being We help our children problem solve, develop social awareness, understand and express their feelings, build confidence and emotional resilience. Now, more than ever our mental health and emotional well-being must be a priority for both adults and children in our school community.
Below are some resources that may be useful to support your family's emotional health, as well as your own. Some resources will help to open up conversations around the range of emotions we are all feeling and give us strategies to cope. There are also resources specifically related to Coronavirus and how to support and reassure children.
As new resources become available we will add them to this section.
It is Children’s Mental Health Week and the theme this year is Express Yourself!
