And for parents and carers we have produced Wellbeing Awareness for Parents following a mental health awareness event at school.
Reading at Home
We want to stress how important it is to take the time to read at the moment – it gives us all a way to relax therefore supporting the wellbeing of students, as well as supporting their academic progress.
Unfortunately, due to school closure, students will be missing out on reading time in their lessons. If working remotely, please remind your child to read for at least 20 minutes every day. This can be independent reading; however, we want to encourage students to be reading aloud to someone at home.
