Well-being at Great Bentley 

As a school we offer in-school support for children from a Thrive trained practitioner. Teachers are already accessing support for individuals,  however as a parent you may feel that your child would benefit from learning strategies to help them reduce anxieties or increase their self-confidence. Maybe you feel they would benefit from having someone to speak to about their concerns/worries in school or perhaps just have someone to talk to that is not emotionally attached to a situation. If you feel your child would benefit from Well-being please speak to your child's class teacher or Mrs Bourne.

Children's Mental Health week 

(1st - 7th February) 

The theme of this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is Express Yourself.

Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.

As parents and carers, you play an important role in your child’s mental health. Check out the free resources below by clicking the image below.
