Hello there and welcome! On this page you can find information about Mental Health and Wellbeing. These are difficult times but together, we can and will, get through this. My team and I have a wealth of experience and have been keeping up to date with different strategies that can be used to cope in the current climate. We have also introduced a Mental Health and Well-Being section to the weekly newsletter full of websites you can access for support, activities to help children cope and adjust and how to look after your general well-being. We are here as well of course and can be contacted through our school emails, should you need any advice or further support.

Mental health week
This year as part of Mental Health Awareness week from 18th to 22nd May 2020, we are inviting your child to take part in activities to help them learn about the importance of getting enough sleep and how it can help them feel better both physically and mentally. This week will end with our annual Purple Day on 22nd May in all our DEMAT schools. The aim of this special day is to raise awareness and recognise our efforts to promote wellbeing and positive mental health for all children, staff and families.
This year however is of course slightly different as not all of us are at school but we can still join in! The theme of the day is Sleep and aims to focus on how we see ourselves, how that makes us feel, to celebrate individuality and uniqueness. We want to inspire your child to celebrate who they are, recognise their strengths, talents and abilities as young people.
On the day, we would like to encourage all children to wear something purple and take lots of photos of the challenges your child’s teacher will set and of the children wearing purple.
Purple day will be great fun for everyone involved and a chance to learn the importance of Mental Health.
Thank you for your support.
Wisbech St Mary’s Well-being team.
