Wellbeing - This is a very anxious time for everyone. You may have concerns about how and where to access support for children’s (and adults’) mental health and wellbeing in the coming weeks, with school closed and families needing to self-isolate. We’ve put together a list of contacts and resources you may find helpful here.


Mrs Sewell has also flagged up this free webinar, tomorrow, from the British Dyslexia Association:
