Children's Mental Health Week

This week (3rd - 9th February) is Children's Mental Health Week. Set up by children's mental health charity Place2Be, the week shines a spotlight on the importance of children and young people's mental health. This year's theme is Find Your Brave.

 

In school Mrs Carpenter, Mental Health Champion, introduced the concept to the children via a whole school assembly, discussing the concept that being brave can mean different things to different people -  simply putting their hand up in class can be a brave thing for some children to do. The children will then be having a discussion within their class about what brave means to them.
