Children's Mental Health Week 2021 (1st- 7th February)

The theme of this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is Express Yourself.

Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.

As parents and carers, you play an important role in your child’s mental health.

Kate Gallagher, the Chair of Governors,  asked for our help to promote Mental Health and Wellbeing in schools so we launched a ‘Design a Poster’ competition for the children.

Below are the winners of our 'Design a Poster' competition:

EYFS Winner- Ezra
KS1 Winner- Amelia J-D
KS2 Winner- Olivia 
 Here are some more of the fantastic entries we had for the competition.
