3 February 2020

We offer you a warm welcome to join us on Friday 7th February at 4-5pm for coffee and biscuits when YoungMinds will be in School talking to Year 7 parents/carers about supporting your child with transition into secondary school.

YoungMinds is an exciting programme focusing on change, mental health and wellbeing especially during the transition from Year 6 to Year 7. Learning about change and how to cope with it will help children with this particular transition as well as prepare them for many other changes and challenges they will face in life. YoungMinds takes a holistic approach by working with the whole school community, including pupils, staff and parents/guardians.

Your child now has half a term experience here with us and will undoubtedly have experienced new situations, some of which may worry them. YoungMinds have been in school delivering workshops to our Year 7 pupils which identified most worries are generic and gave a sense of 'being in it together'.

Our parent morning will be to explore some of the challenges that your children may face during transition and look at some practical resources.

We do hope you will be able to join us and we look forward to meeting you.

Mrs K Peckover and Mrs E Breen.
