Children's Mental Health Week 
7-13th February 2022
 

The theme of this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is  Growing Together.

Growing Together is about growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow. Challenges and setbacks can help us to grow and adapt and trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone into a new realm of possibility and potential. However, emotional growth is often a gradual process that happens over time, and sometimes we might feel a bit ‘stuck’.

As parents and carers, you play an important role in your child’s mental health. Check out this link which has many resources related to Children's Mental Health

 
 

Coming back to school.

We want your child to feel supported on their return to school. We would like to do whatever we can to help your child settle and thrive in what has already been a different and difficult year. We are hoping you will find the 'coming back to school' form a useful tool to discuss and share your child’s thoughts which will help them to feel valued and re-establish connections with school.

Your child can complete the form with you or on their own, whichever they are most comfortable doing.

Once completed, please email back as an attachment or send WhatsApp photograph to Suzanne Webb (School’s Mental Health Lead).

I will then share with the relevant people as identified by your child, or make contact should this be requested.

Listen to Basil Brush reading Sadsville - a Magical & Whimsical story for 6 -10-year-olds – to help primary children understand emotions. 

These are free, fun, curriculum-linked videos featuring famous faces that will encourage your class to get active while they learn.

Each video supports either the KS1 or KS2 PSHE curriculum, covering themes such as coping with feelings, respecting ourselves and others, and friends and family.
