As a Trailblazer school we are able to access professional support from

Young Minds Matter.

It is really important that we look after our mental health and wellbeing.  It is only natural to feel worried and unsettled but if this prevents us from functioning or feeling like ourselves for too long, it is really important to speak to someone.  

Young Minds Matter can support children and their families in a variety of different ways and can provide specialist advice for families around changes in behaviour, anxiety and low mood.  Young Minds Matter have also created their own wellbeing packs that can be posted or sent out digitally to families.  

You can contact them directly on;

01452 894300 

Alternatively, speak to your child's class teacher for more information.
