Mental Health & Wellbeing
We were very proud to receive our Wellbeing Award for Schools this year, which was awarded in partnership with the National Children's Bureau and earned with hard work from our staff and pupils. We will continue with this hard word to ensure our school community always has the mental health and wellbeing of us all as one of our main focuses.
We are pleased to share with you a video resource that has been created by the Lancashire Mind team as part of the Whole School Approach project. The subject is 'How to Cope with Change'. The content has been developed from a Whole School Approach assembly, and has been adapted to offer some support and reassurance to pupils during these challenging times.
