Health and Well-Being
The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is affecting everyone’s daily lives, as the government and the NHS take necessary steps to manage the outbreak, reduce transmission and treat those who need medical attention.
Regardless of their age, this may be a difficult time for children and young people. Some may react right away, while others may show signs of difficulty later on.
During this time, it’s important that you take care of your family’s mental health – there are lots of things you can do. Links and ideas are listed below which can be accessed as appropriate.
If you would like a call from someone at school please do email the school's admin account and we will be in contact.
Be kind, Be safe and look after one another.
