Student Support Positive Mental Health & Wellbeing

Good morning!

We are here - the end of of two weeks of a completely new set-up. You've done amazingly well to come this far and you should be proud of the motivation you have developed.

This is going to my last email to the year group for a couple of weeks. I think it is important that you have the opportunity to switch off for a couple of weeks and this also applies to the fantastic staff who have also had to adapt to a new way of teaching & learning in such a short space of time, as well as managing their own families at home.

Although teachers will not be setting new work, I want you to think about maintaining a routine - consider a small amount of work, revising over previous content just to help you keep a structure to the day. Don't lose the routine you have worked so hard to develop this last couple of weeks.

I have attached a PowerPoint that has some websites that can continue to offer support if you require it - I know being in this situation will continue to cause stress and anxiety for some of you and there is always support available.

Coping Calendar - Get good sleep. No screens before bed or when waking up. Anyone in that habit before bed? Habits are tough to break, but try no phones/screens 1 hour before bed and see if it helps if you are struggling to get to sleep. Never underestimate the power of good sleep - I'm sure Imogen would agree.

April Calendar - Write 10 things you are grateful for and why - Lets take baby steps here - try writing down 5 things this week, 5 things next week. And if a person makes it on that list, do you tell them that you appreciate them?

Today's music has been put forward my myself and I think it is something we can end our week on. And in the words of Harry Campbell, "a banger of a tune", bought to you by The Cardigans - My Favourite Game.

As always, take care of yourself and others and please stay safe.

Mr Jeffrey
