7-13th February – Children’s Mental Health Week
This week is “Children’s Mental Health Week”.
The theme for this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is ‘Growing Together’.
During this week, we will be exploring the concept of growing emotionally and thinking about ways the children can help each other grow.
From happy thoughts, positive minds and feeling good to friendships, health and enjoying life and all that is around us.
To help children and young people to grow emotionally, and grow together as a whole school community, it’s important that we embrace and celebrate diversity in all its forms.
It’s vital that our children feel that they are able to be their full authentic selves in our school environment, and by encouraging this, school staff will also be able to support the children’s wellbeing, confidence and self-esteem.
