Like all schools we are becoming increasingly conscious of the helpful role we can play in promoting the mental health of children, staff and families. Parenting and, indeed teaching too, although rewarding, is not always easy and sometimes can be really challenging. Luckily there is help out there. One resource that comes highly recommended by other schools and families is the website of the charity Young Minds who seek to promote the mental health and well-being of children and young people. They have a free helpline available for parents (0808 802 5544)which provides confidential expert advice.
