Today is the beginning of Children’s Mental Health Week. It’s time to focus on your own mental health and your child’s.
Here are some great posters with information and ideas.

A St Teresa of Lisieux  children’s wellbeing is considered a great importance and we would like to help you support your child with this during any period of isolation. The following are links to support your child’s wellbeing and mental and physical health. Keeping active, getting outside (just in to the garden), being creative (e,g. baking, art), mindfulness time (e.g. mindful colouring, yoga, meditation), can all help support your child and yourselves.
