This week is National Children’s Mental Health week and this year’s theme is Express yourself! We would love to see how you all express yourselves whether it be through art, story writing or singing. Upload pictures/videos or stories to your teachers on teams and let them know it’s for Children’s Mental Health Week. Pupils will be taking part in activities during PSHE and Form Time throughout the week.
The latest statistics show that 1 in 10 children have a diagnosable mental illness. However, in these trying times, it’s understandable that most children are feeling the pressures. Things like mood swings, being low and problems with behaviour is to be expected.
Thursday 4th February is Time to Talk Day. On this day, we would like for you to spend some time talking to each other about anything and everything.
