Ways parents can help children struggling during lockdown

A beautiful book of poems explaining Covid-19 to younger children

This is a little book for you to keep. We invite you to fill it with all the things that make you feel happy and loved and safe. Things feel different right now and it is completely normal for you to feel different too. We hope this book of hope will help you feel a little better when you need it.

Why we must never stop talking about children and young people’s mental health

Better mental health starts with a conversation. Achieving that first step – mustering the courage to share something so deeply personal and troubling – needs support, understanding and encouragement. This is especially true for children and young people. If you have any concerns about a child's mental health or wellbeing we are here to help and if we cannot we will signpost you to those who can.

 

If you think you may need help in any way please contact our DSL (Designated Safeguarding Lead : Miss Dewhurst) as soon as possible.
