Children's Mental Health Week 7 - 13 February
Claires Court will be celebrating Children's Mental Health Week. As part of our celebrations, we will be having a daily activity focused on our mental health and join nation-wide webinars throughout the week. We are also inviting the children to dress up for 'Dress to Express' day on the 11 February, when we will be encouraging them to come into school in an outfit that they feel really represents who they are! In addition to this, all classes will be having a visit from Openview Education, who will host a 45 minute workshop with each class, helping them to learn self-care techniques, build resilience and boost their wellbeing. If you would like to get involved, we will also be sharing links to at home activities and virtual parent workshops to join from home in our class bulletins closer to the time.
