Mental Health

Our students have had to cope with an abrupt end to their current school life, the cancellation of exams and a prohibition of face-to-face contact with their friends.

Young people may get anxious and their mental health and well-being may suffer.

How can we help as teachers and parents/carers?

  1. Try to talk to your child regularly about how they are feeling; answer any questions they may have and discuss their concerns.
  2. Model and encourage positivity.
  3. Stay active as a family and get exercise daily (following the social distancing rules).
  4. Use the advice and support available online. (See links below)
  5. Let school know if you are concerned about your child’s mental health. We may be able to set up some counselling for your child - email Mrs Downing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
