Pupils and staff are recognising Children’s Mental Health Week in a variety of ways.
Feeding into the wider health and wellbeing curriculum, pupils will take part in activities across the week to increase awareness and provide tools to encourage positive mental health.
Mrs Webb, Head of Nursery and Junior School highlighted: “We want all our children to continue to learn about health and wellbeing to ensure they acquire the skills to live healthy and happy lives.
“As part of Children’s Mental Health Week, all our classes will incorporate different activities for children to complete as part of the health and wellbeing curriculum.
“Over the course of the week the children will listen to our assembly “Challenge Your Mindset”. Challenges, mistakes and problems are part of every day learning and social interactions. We discuss how to use a growth mindset and using problem solving approaches which is all part of our programme developing resilience.”
To mark the start of Children’s Mental Health Week, The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of Place2Be, has sent a message of support encouraging children and parents to find ways to share their thoughts and feelings, particularly during such a challenging time.
