Children’s Mental Health Week 2024
Dear Parents/ Carers,
On the 8th of February we will be taking part in Children’s Mental Health Week 2024 focusing on ‘Self-love’ and ‘My Voice Matters.’
My Voice Matters is about empowering children and young people by providing them with the tools they need to express themselves. When we feel empowered, there’s a positive impact on our wellbeing. Children who feel that their voices are heard and can make a difference have a greater sense of community and self-esteem.
Pupils will be able to take part in a range of ‘Self-love’ activities throughout the day including our Valentines Disco and café. To really help them to feel extra special on the day it would be lovely for your child to come to school in their favourite outfit, best party clothes or just something red. We will be encouraging pupils to recognise their qualities through positive affirmation activities.
To find out more about supporting your child’s mental health and wellbeing please visit the school website where there are lots of useful links. You may also wish to visit the Now and Beyond website as the charity will be hosting a mental health festival with various live videos throughout the day. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you feel you need support regarding the wellbeing of yourself or child, we will be happy to provide a listening ear and signpost you to some of the support available.
We look forward to a lovely last day with the pupils.
