Healthy Minds: Supporting Children through Tests & Transition

18th Jan 2023

Dear Y5/Y6 Parents/Carers

We are planning to host a second Healthy Minds Coffee afternoon on Thursday 9th February, starting at 2.15pm

This time the event will be aimed at the parents/carers of our older Y5 and Y6 children.

Lynette Greenacre and Jacqui Wright, from our Healthy Minds Support Team, will deliver a session focused on supporting the children so they can manage any anxieties they might have around the Y6 statutory tests and/or their eventual transition to secondary school.

Lynette and Jacqui are both child mental health experts and will be able to offer lots of helpful tips and advice to parents/carers on how they can help their children if they struggle at all during this time.

During the meeting we also hope to reassure you, more generally, that the school's approach to these statutory tests is always deliberately gentle, considered and focused on supporting and not pressuring the children. We aim to encourage and affirm the children, as we prepare them - and this will be emphasised throughout. 

Kind regards,

F Barratt - Headteacher
