National Children’s Mental Health Week
The week of the 5th February is National Children's Mental Health Week, which is a mental health awareness week that empowers, equips and give a voice to all children and young people in the UK.
Now in its tenth year, the theme this year is, 'My Voice Matters,' where we seek to empower children of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to work together to create a positive change for their mental health and wellbeing.
Please find attached an invitation to a Parent Webinar, run by the Mental Health in Schools Team. If you wish to attend, please sign up by scanning the QR Code on the poster. You may also find the links below useful.
Kindness Week - November 2023
From 13th - 17th November, our schools celebrate Kindness Week. We have been spending time in assemblies and classrooms learning what it means to be kind. For our Infant School children, we made badges to give to our friends, and we have been learning the difference between bullying and unkind words.
Children have been practising their kind words with their friends and peers across the year group.
We also have our Kindness Tress, set up in the foyer, by the main entrance to the school. Children have been writing what it means to be kind and attaching their notes to the tree. It is lovely to see the children's words and what kindness means to them.
Mental Health Awareness Week from 9th October
During this week we were raising the awareness of positive mental wellbeing. On Tuesday 10th October we supported WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY, with a non-uniform day and children were welcome to come to school wearing a yellow item. As well as talking in our classes about positive mental wellbeing we held special themed assemblies throughout the week too.
