World Health Day

World Mental Health Day was held on Thursday 10th October 2019.  All children in school took part in different activities throughout the day, exploring and learn more about Mental Health and Wellbeing in an age appropriate way.

Children had the opportunity to: 

  • Listen to and read different stories
  • Recognise and talk about different feelings
  • Learn about the 5 ways of Wellbeing (Connect, Keep learning, Give, Take notice, Be active)
  • Discuss who they can talk to if they need help and how they can help others.

It would great if you can talk with your child about what they learned in school on World Mental Health Day.

More information to support parents can be found on our school website in the Academy Info Tab called Mental Health/Wellbeing Section.

Bookbags

Please can Parent/Carers remind their children daily if there are letters / money etc in their bookbag, please hand these to their class teacher. Thanks DHIA

Parent/ Carer Addresses

Please can Parent/Carers ensure that school has the correct address for their child, as letters etc can be posted to the home address. Thanks DHIA

Pierced Ears
