Children's Mental Health Week - reference links

01 February 2021

Last week I outlined some of the outstanding pastoral care on offer here at EHS.  This week we have been sign posting pupils to a number of activities and resources designed to foster and reinforce positive mental health.  All pupils have access to videos, activities and help sheets that provide hints and tips on everything from managing anxiety to learning to express yourself.  

If you would like to get involved as parents and carers please click the link below
