We hope that, during this unusual and challenging time, we are all able to take some positives. Spending more time together as families, finding new ways to communicate and slowing down a little are some of the possible benefits, but we also know there are many worries to face. Children can be very perceptive, and this period of change will impact them too. The teachers are still here to answers your questions about school and your child’s wellbeing, but we have also added some resources here to help. There are activities around anxiety, relaxation, confidence, resilience and self-awareness. Have a look and work through any you think might help. More resources will follow, so check back. If you have any queries please do contact us.
