We were delighted to support ,Young Minds ‘Hello Yellow’ day on Friday 9th October. Young Minds are the UK’s leading charity fighting for children and young people’s mental health. Their aim is to lead the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges. All the children and staff came to school wearing something yellow, making a donation to the charity and we were delighted to raise over £150.
Mental health is something that we are aware has become of even greater priority during Covid-19 . Here at The Firs we aim to provide the very best care to our students, and whilst ensuring the children achieve their academic potential it is essential their mental health is strong. We know happy children love to learn and we aim to provide an environment where children feel safe, secure and able to share any anxieties and worries they may have. We have a number of programmes in place to support positive mental health and staff trained in mental health first aid.
