Distance Learning - Well-being

Distant Learning Information 2020

Well-Being and Mental Health

The government is now advising us to avoid all but essential social contact. This will mean that more of us will be spending a lot of time at home and many regular social activities will be unavailable. It is important that through this period of time we look after our own well-being and mental health as well as try and encourage our children to do the same. 

 

It is important to schedule in physical activities and mindfulness breaks - below are some links to try and help you support your child at home.
