Dear Parents,

My tip for this week is in relation to the organisation ‘Young Minds’. Earlier in the academic year, we encouraged the children to dress in yellow for our ‘Hello Yellow’ day; an idea launched by Young Minds. It is a brilliant and very comprehensive website which you can subscribe to.

The parent section of the website has lots of ideas, activities and resources to support parents with their understanding of mental health and how they might support their child’s wellbeing. Some of the information is more appropriate for those with older children and young people but lots of it is relevant to children of any age. I definitely recommend having a browse!

The parents A-Z guide is brilliant – https://youngminds.org.uk/find-help/for-parents/parents-guide-to-support-a-z/ and I also attach a ‘conversation starter’ document which has some useful starting points if your child has had a bad day or is having a difficult time.

I hope you have a great weekend.

Best wishes,
Miss Barnes
