Child and Parent well-being and mental health


If you're worried your child may be struggling with their mental health or has anxiety about coronavirus (COVID-19), we've got advice to help you support them. There is a lot of uncertainty in the world at the moment and there won't always be answers to the questions your children are asking. However, we can help you have these conversations in a safe and open way.
The below links are from well known organisations and charities who help both parents and children with well-being and mental health.
If you think you or your child require any additional support then please discuss this with your child’s class teacher. If we don’t have the expertise to help you, we will be able to signpost you to someone who can.
