Mental Health and Well-being
This section deals with the impact that the closure of school and the ongoing pandemic has on the Mental Health & Well-being of our school community – children and adults alike. We have included useful tips on dealing with the situation and links to where you can get help if you are concerned about your child or anyone else in your family.
We will be updating this section throughout the remainder of the time that we are away from school – please keep checking up on it. We will also be adding weekly well-being challenges, with the idea being that we want our families to let us know how they are getting on and all the things that you are doing to make the best out of this difficult situation. The children will gain positive points for themselves and House points for all the activities that they tell us about. Please let us know of anything that your child(ren) has done that you are proud of during their time away from school. We are faced with this extra time together as families and has enabled us to look at their education in a whole new way. They may have learned a new skill – Baking, painting, building etc. They may have taken on more chores around the house. They may have been pivotal in teaching the grown-ups in their lives how to use technology to communicate with family and friends so that you can all keep in touch. Let us know, we want to know what they are up to!
Remember that whilst there are other agencies and charities that you can look to for help, we at school are here to continue to support you in any way that we can. Please do not hesitate to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
