COVID-19 Health and Well-Being

COVID-19 Health and Well-being

 

This period of instability and uncertainty, including increased time at home, can have an adverse effect on the mental health and well-being of both children and adults. 

As a school, we aim to be there as much as possible for our families and encourage you to seek support should you need or want it at any time.

There are several sources of support available to parents and children during this time:

 

School Support

 

• We encourage you to contact your child’s class teacher for academic support via Weduc or by calling school to arrange a phone call
• Please contact the Headteacher or Deputy Headteacherfor support with anything else. 
• Our ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) who is highly experienced in support children’s wellbeing, is also available to support families and can be contacted via Weduc or by ringing the school office.
