Mental wellbeing

Below is a list of online mental well being resources for you to access with your children.

It is designed to provide guidance on how to support the wellbeing of children and young people being educated during these unusual times.

It is important to discuss what is happening currently and give our children an understanding as to why life is so different at the moment.  Children need to be assured that their emotional response to current affairs is a natural process that they and their friends are experiencing.
