Welcome to the Mental Health and Well Being page.
Children's Mental Health Week
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.
