3rd-9th February - Children's Mental Health Week

Children's Mental Health Week

3rd-9th February

The National Statistics show that 1 in 8 children and young people suffer with a  mental health issue. 

Often at a younger age children find it difficult to understand and explain how they are feeling.


At Homefields we are dedicated to supporting the well being of our children by ensuring that they know they have someone to talk to. During Children's Mental Health week we will be working with our children in the classrooms and in assemblies to promote the 5 ways to good mental health.


Our main message will be "Finding your Brave" where sharing our worries and emotions and asking for help can help us mentally. Also, pushing outside our comfort zone and trying something new can help us feel good about ourselves.


How did it all go in school?

This week staff have worked with the children in their classes and in assemblies on the theme of "Finding your Brave!" We have talked as a staff and were amazed at the knowledge and understanding our children have on mental health issues across the school. Their ability to verbalise their understanding of mental health issues and their empathy and compassion were just incredible. Parents -  you should be very proud of your little people - we most definitely are!
