Children's Mental Health Week 7-13th February
We value our children's welfare and this week is a very important feature in our school calendar. All pupils will have the opportunity to participate and engage in activities relating to this year's theme - "Growing Together." We will be asking key questions such as:
What is growing together?
Why is it important?
Who helps us grow emotionally?
There are also tips for parents and carers via this link: bit.ly/3C8wHC7
In addition, Parent Mental health Day took place and this is the link for information relating to it: https://choices.somerset.gov.uk/025/send-news/parent-mental-health-day/send-news/
We will be awarding certificates to our Mental Health champions too!
