This week (8-14 February 2016), it's Children's Mental Health week.
To raise awareness of keeping mentally healthy pupils have had assemblies and workshops this week on how to build resilience and ways in which to 'bounce back' from the challenges that they can face.
Go to the Place2Be section and the Relax Kids section for handy tips to support in building your child's resilience.
Our two Learning Mentors spent time this week in individual classes...
In Key Stage one Mr Cooney got pupils to blow their worries into balloons and then let them go.
In Key Stage two Mrs Gillingham showed the pupils a basket of props that she uses to help her focus, relax and clear her mind. She then invited the pupils to join in a relaxation exercise.
