Wear your scarf to school day
During the week 7th-11th February, we will be supporting Children’s Mental Health Week across the federation. Children’s mental health is very important, particularly following the challenges faced by many during the course of the pandemic. At school, we promote mental wellbeing and this half term we have been focusing on mindfulness as part of our bespoke curriculum learning. Helping our pupils to recognise what they can do to support their own mental health and when to seek help from others is an important part of education. Throughout Children’s Mental Health Week, we will be taking part in a range of activities to raise the profile of good mental health further.
On Friday 11th February, we will be inviting children to wear a scarf to school as part of Coram Life Education’s ‘Wear your Scarf to School Day’. Coram Life Education is the leading provider of relationships, health, wellbeing, and drugs education to almost half a million children across the UK. They use the acronym SCARF to stand for Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship. We are asking for a 50p donation which will go to the Coram Life Education charity to support the work they do in schools.
Please encourage discussions at home with your children about what they have learnt at school about the importance of looking after their mental health and ways in which they can do that.
