Children's Health & WellBEING
Sleep and Tiredness
Does your child have a regular set bedtime and routine?
In a recent survey of our children, a higher percentage than average for the county reported feeling tired when they come into school. Research shows lack of sleep has a serious affect on children's ability to learn. Please use the link above to find out more about how you can help your child get more sleep.
Children's mental health is a growing concern for the whole nation, as children today face different pressures, stresses and risks. If you are concerned about your child's emotional well being or mental health, speak to your GP or your child's class teacher who can refer you to the right local services for support.
At school, we are teaching children how to be "Mindful" through breathing exercises and mediation, to name a few. This is in order to help the children to recognise their emotions and deal with them in a controlled and calm way. Miss Wright (Beech class TA) has books and information she can lend you, if you would like to find out more.
We are also working with Compass Buzz, a local authority service who provide staff training to help pupils deal with social, emotional and mental health concerns.
