  • Home Learning during COVID-19 (2021)

    Published 06/01/21

    Dear Parents/Carers,

    Whilst we are now delighted to have a group of key worker and vulnerable children in school, we recognise that there is a large group of you learning at home.

    We appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning whilst at home is not  easy so we have prepared content for your child that can be completed both independently or with adult support. Please email your child’s class teacher with any queries or if you would like share any of your child’s learning. We're always on the end of an email, so please make contact with us. Everything that you do with your child will make a difference.

    Although we don't know what the next few days, weeks or even months will look like, we are here for you and your children and will try our hardest to support in every way that we can. 

    Keep safe and we look forward to welcoming your children back soon.

  • Every Mind Matters - NHS England (BNTO Week)

    Published 10/11/20

    Parenting or caring for a child or young person can be tough. It's important to make sure you look after your own mental wellbeing, as this will help you support yourself and those you care about

    Try to recognise and acknowledge when you're feeling low or overwhelmed. Struggling with something or experiencing your own mental health problems does not make you a bad parent or carer.

    It's completely normal to be worried, scared or helpless during difficult times, and feeling this way is nothing to be ashamed of.

    Is there a friend, fellow parent or carer you trust enough to tell how you're feeling? Maybe there's family, friends or a colleague who could support you or allow you a break?

    There's plenty of help out there. You should never feel like you have to cope on your own.

    Young Minds has lots of support for parents, including a helpline and guidance around parenting with a mental illness.

    Mind has information and suggestions on how to manage parenting with a mental health problem.

    Scope has advice on managing stress when caring for a disabled child.
