Children's Mental Health Week 2017
6-12 February 2017
Westacre is proud to support Children’s Mental Health Week 2017 (6-12 February).
Many children go through tough times just like adults and in those moments, the smallest acts of kindness can make a big difference. That is why Westacre is joining hundreds of other schools to ‘spread a little kindness’ by taking part in Children’s Mental Health Week.
The Week is hosted by children's mental health charity Place2Be, who support pupils, families and teachers in schools across the UK. During the Week, we will be discussing what contributes to good mental health and explore strategies to combat times of difficulty. Please see the PSHE page to see the PowerPoint presentation which was shown in class along with details of a kindness superhero competition!
If you would also like to get involved and support the campaign, Place2Be has created helpful advice and resources for parents and carers which you can find on their website: www.childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk.
