School Closure Support and Information
Please find below, useful information regarding support during school closures.
There are some great resources here, to support our return to school:
-The help & advice section of the We Are With You website contains some helpful articles which include tips for relaxing at home, how to break a habit and setting boundaries.
- The Anna Freud Centre is hosting a free seminar series, 'From Crisis to Kindness', for Mental Health Awareness Week. The seminars ask how we can bring together what we have learned in the last seven weeks and embed it in our future work.
- This calendar, designed to be used throughout Mental Health Awareness Week, encourages pupils to do two acts of kindness each day – one to someone else and one to themselves.
- Finally, a reminder that we are hosting an online session for care placement staff/carers on Thursday 21st May between 10am-11am and this can be accessed using Google Meet via the following link:
The NSPCC has an extensive page of resources which can help parents and carers to support children and young people who may be suffering from anxiety during this period.
This blog highlights key messages about loneliness and social connection, looks at how they can be applied to social care practice and contains access to useful resources.
