Saturday 10th October 2020 is World Mental Health Day

This Year has been especially tough for us all, with months of lockdown having a huge impact on our mental health and wellbeing.

We know it’s been difficult for our Ashley Primary School community during this period, however we have experienced great support, resilient pupils and a community spirit. 

We have attached some links to websites to support yourself and your child.  If you need further advice or support, please contact our Child and Family Welfare Officer, Julie Graham, who will signpost you to the support you may need.

The Anna Freud website has an excellent Early Years A-Z guide of common difficulties, from separation anxiety, sleep problems and tantrums.
