Welcome Back. We are delighted to welcome all the Children back from March the 8th and are very much looking forwards to seeing everyone on April the 12th for the Summer (Pentecost) Term. As we are still in lockdown, all the restrictions that were in place in the Spring (Lent) Term are still in place for everyone's safety.

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust have developed a self-care kit for primary school aged children which is aimed at looking after their emotional health and wellbeing during this time. The kit covers lots of topics, including staying healthy, handling emotions, letting go of worries and staying connected, plus some fun things to do whilst at home. There are breathing exercises, advice on conversation starters, a postcard that can be filled in with a message to family member or friend they are missing and much more. It can be downloaded from the Health for Kids: Grownups website: https://www.healthforkids.co.uk/grownups/healthy-minds/download-our-health-for-kids-looking-after-yourself-kit/
