Children's mental health and well-being
Your mental health and wll-being is very important to us at Sandfield Close Primary School. We have been working hard this year with you all to create different resources to support mental health and well-being. Working with children, we have produced a series of leaflets that we aim to share with you all in a school assembly.
In the meantime, there are lots of ways to support your mental health and well-being.
Talking with your parents or teachers about any concerns you may have is very important - it is so good to talk. Your parents and teachers can offer you support and advice.
During the school closure due to the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic, there are many websites below that can help you with your mental health and well-being. Please always remember that your parents and carers are always happy to listen to any of your concerns, worries or fears.
