Place2Be's Children's Mental Health Week 2023 took place from 6th – 12th February 2023. This year's theme was Let's Connect.

Over February half term, pupils were invited to write down a moment when they felt connected and place it in a box by reception. Mrs Bridges, our school Mental Health and Wellbeing Lead, selected one at random. Congratulations to Emily, in year 7, who won a calm and mindfulness notebook.

All pupils were invited, in form, to think about when they felt connected and to write it down on a strip of coloured paper. As you can see pupils chose different moments from their lives, from being with their families, to caring for pets, to playing sport or relaxing with friends.

A number of different resources to help mental wellbeing can be found on our school website and each month a wellbeing bulletin is published to enable pupils to see what sessions will be taking place in school and what support is available.
