Supporting Health and Well-Being
As a school we are now in a second lockdown. Throughout 2020 there has been significant disruption to our children's education. This has brought about uncertainty and change for some children, while others may appear to be coping very well and showing incredible levels of resilience.
The Mental Health Foundation offers a range of tips for leaders, teachers, parents and carers.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the continued levels of restrictions in place across the UK, is an unprecedented situation that continues to affect our lives. It will be hard to gauge the full impact the situation is having on children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing until we emerge from it.
Pupils’ experiences of the pandemic will be very varied. Some, despite restrictions, will feel safe and mostly enjoy their time. For others, it will be challenging or even traumatic. Schools and teachers are used to supporting their pupils through challenges that they face in life – the current situation will amplify those situations many times over.

Children may have experienced loneliness, struggled with changes to their routines or experienced periods of anxiety. We have gathered some useful resources for parents in managing some of these challenges. There is also a bank of resources on the SEND page - see the About Us Tab. If you have any worries about the well-being or mental health of your child, then please contact the school office.
