Welcome to our Emotional Wellbeing Area!
We aim to offer support and advice for parents and our pupils, and some suggestions for activities.
We know that being in isolation and dealing with school closure can be difficult for our children and our parents and carers. We are mindful that many children will be missing friends, struggling to understand why they cannot leave the home and may be worrying about the virus and it’s impact.
For us, there is nothing more important than our children’s and parent’s wellbeing, by trying to keep them positive and happy during this uncertain time is our priority. We have provided a variety of resources and links below that will support emotional and mental wellbeing for all.
Please keep checking into this area, as we plan to add suggestions and resources as your children’s needs change through the course of any further developments.
