Parent Support and Useful Child Wellbeing Links

Where parents and carers might find it useful to access support for children’s health and wellbeing, for example where a child has an additional need or specific support programme, there are also some links below which can be explored.

Children’s Mental Health Week 2020-21

To help parents and staff focus on nurturing children’s positive mental health in these challenging times, the following link takes you to a range of activities and further sources of help and information:

Children’s Mental Health Week

We like this one, particularly! The Squiggle Game!

We also like the creative and artistic mindfulness and relaxation activities like the ones you can find on these pages here if you follow the links:

Place 2 B – The Art Room

Mindfulness – BBC Cbeebies

Children in Need – KS2 – Mindfulness ideas

You might also like to look at ‘I am going back to my school’ to support your child if they are a key worker / vulnerable child using the provision for the first time.
