Looking after each other
Welcome to our 'looking after yourself and others' area.
We know what a difficult time this is for everyone so we hope to offer some support and advice for our parents and pupils, through suggested activities and signposts to other resources to support mental wellness.
We are still in close contact with may of the other professional we work with and some of them have kindly offered the following suggestions:
