7th - 11th February 2022. We supported Children's Mental Health Week by completing activities around the theme of 'Growing Together' and holding a special assembly around mental health which was led by our Young Person's Mental Health Practitioner, Harriet, and our school council. We rounded the week off with 'Dress As Your Role Model Day', which gave staff and pupils the opportunity to dress as the people who were important influences on their lives.
