Keeping Safe Week and Mental Health Week
We had a special week where the children learnt about how to keep themselves safe (protective behaviours). They learnt about early warning signs, which trusted adults they could talk to, how to stay safe on the internet and about the NSPCC Pants are Private.
In addition, the children learnt about how to improve their mental health and tips and how strategies such as drawing, being outside, listening to music can all help. We also discussed different people we could talk to if we had worries, anxieties or were suffering with our mental health. Our week ended with a 'Dress to Express Day' where children came to school wearing whatever they wanted in recognition that we are all different and that is a truly wonderful thing.
