Around three children in every primary school class has a mental health problem, and many more struggle with challenges from bullying to bereavement. We have noticed a significant rise in children struggling since the pandemic began.
From 1-7 February 2021 Parsons Down Partnership will join schools, youth groups, organisations and individuals across the UK as we take part in Children’s Mental Health Week. This year’s theme is Express Yourself.
On Monday 1st February there is a special assembly for all pupils on Oak Academy which will go live at 9am https://classroom.thenational.academy/assemblies/childrens-mental-health-week-2021
On Tuesday 2nd February we are having a Partnership non-school uniform day and asking children at home and school to express themselves through what they wear. Children in school will have their usual headteacher assembly on Tuesday morning and those learning at home can join Mrs Bull at 10am for a live Zoom assembly where we will explore the theme of expressing yourself and how this can support mental health.
Meeting ID: 878 5658 7261
Whilst we must be apart let’s come together and celebrate our differences.
