MENTAL HEALTH & WELLBEING
Since we have returned to school last week, we have been focussing on wellbeing and supporting children emotionally as well as working hard to meet the learning needs of each child individually. We have adapted our curriculum to ensure children receive the support they need to help them feel safe and well in school.
We also understand that it is not only children who struggle with this. As adults, we have all had to adapt to the changes in responsibility, or changes in individual circumstances which may have had an impact on our own wellbeing and mental health.
Whether it is your child's or your own wellbeing that is worrying you, please get in touch with us at school.
