At St Peter’s, we work with the children to support their mental health, developing strategies with all children through our PSHE lessons to support their own wellbeing and to understand their emotions and relationships. For our parents, we have curated a list of links to help support children’s mental health from home.
If you do have concerns for your child’s mental health, please contact your child’s class teacher.
The ChildLine website has a calm zone with resources for children under 12, these include breathing exercises, yoga, games and activities around mindfulness.
Place2Be offers a menu of different services, including advice and support for families and school staff, to build resilience and raise awareness of mental health across the whole school community. This section of their site offers practical tips to support children’s wellbeing and behaviour.
Parents and carers play an important role in teaching children and young people how to understand and manage their feelings as they grow up. This page suggests ways to be supportive at home, things to look out for if you have mental health concerns for your child and also links to other resources/sites e.g. bereavement support, starting school, divorce/separation support.
