Mental Health For Children

We understand that this can be a worrying time for everyone and it can certainly prove to be troubling for some our our pupils.  To help manage our feelings and mental health throughout this challenge, we will share useful sites and resources that can be used to help our children understand what is happening and choose healthy perspectives and responses to it.  Please get in touch with us if you have any concerns and leave your details; Mrs Cooper or another member of staff will return your call when we are available.
