Children’s Mental Health Week – Embrace yourself

As a school, our pupils’ well-being is vitally important to us and we therefore try to encourage our pupils to take care of themselves physically and mentally. Throughout mental health week, despite our learning continuing remotely, the pupils took part in activities which allowed them to explore their own mental health and make acknowledgements, improvements and, hopefully, adopt new habits to promote a healthy wellbeing for the future.

This week, we took time out during form time and also participated in activities during our spare time. The theme for the week was ‘Embrace yourself’. This was a chance for pupils to show ways that they could embrace themselves to help with their mental wellbeing. There were many wonderful ways the pupils did this, which involved playing music they can dance too, drawing, colouring, singing, cycling, cooking, baking, poems, writing and plenty more.
