Although some children have returned to school already, for many, the new autumn term will be their first time stepping into a classroom since lockdown began. Understandably, this may be a strange or worrying time for some children, parents and carers.
We know that supporting children’s mental wellbeing during the return to school is a key priority for many of you. The mentally healthy schools website have produced some ideas for parents featuring activities and tips for how to prepare your child for re-starting school in September.
Three of these resources are below and you can also visit the Mentally healthy schools website.
Mental Health awareness week takes place in the week beginning 18th May.
This is a challenging time for all of us so it is important to look after ourselves mentally as well as physically.
Have a look at this resource given to us by the Child and Adolescent mental health Service for some lovely ideas on the theme of kindeness.
