Mental Health at St John's

 

During our March parent consultations, we ran a presentation on screen about our progress with Mental Health plans. The presentation included data collected from our surveys from parents and children:

Children’s Mental Health Week:  3-7 February 2020

 

During Children's Mental Health Week the children learnt all about mental health via assemblies and activities in class. On Friday 7 January they were asked to wear their jumpers inside out as a reminder that we cannot always see what’s going on inside (more info here - https://www.tes.com/news/wear-clothes-inside-out-promote-mental-health)

 

The children were shown the below video, produced by the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, during Children's Mental Health Week assemblies.

 

Please see the leaflets below for ideas and sources of help.
