Event Description
Our parents are key partners when it comes to the emotional health and wellbeing of pupils. As we develop our curriculum to teach positive mental health it will be crucial to involve parents in understanding what we are teaching and why. In doing so, we not only help our pupils but also share positive strategies that may benefit the whole family.
