Health and Wellbeing

We have now updated our Parents/Carers tab to include a new Mental Health and Well-being section.   This section of our website contains links to websites that have information and resources to help to support the Mental Health and Well-being of parents/carers and young people.

Save the Children Resource Pack

During school closure, Save the Children have developed a home learning pack (attached) which is aimed at parents with a child aged 3-6 years old.  It contains information on: how to talk about the Coronavirus to children; play based learning activities for children; and information for parents.  It is hoped that this resource will support parents / carers to engage positively with their children and reduce stress levels within the family.
