We have mental health champions in school who are starting to promote mental health and wellbeing awareness in school. Some of our children took part in World Mental Health day this year.
Amid the Covid 19 pandemic, supporting the wellbeing of children has never been so important. We realise your contact with parents is limited at this time, so have produced our 10 Top Tips Parent Resource which you can place on your website/parent hub page, or send as a link to your parents.
This resource is designed to offer advice on how parents can safeguard their child/ren’s mental health and promote their wellbeing.
The resource is available as a document and short video presentation.
The link to both resources is https://ssscpd.co.uk/education/parentsandguardians/child-mental-health-10-tips-for-parents
We are proud to be supporting #childrensmentalhealthweek. This week we have all been;
setting ourselves emotional goals and reaching for the stars;
being proud of how we have grown together since September; making well-being wells to help us whenever we might feel sad or upset in the future; thinking about the people in our lives who help to lift us up – our support networks; planting our own seeds in our edible garden to help us to understand that it takes time to grow, we need help and we all grow in different ways.
Thank you to Mrs Baxter for also releasing teachers/staff to talk to each class about mental health as well as giving the teachers a surprise break!
We highlighted children’s mental health week this year with a ‘Dress to Express Day’ – see pics below…
