Feeling a certain amount of concern or worry is natural when we encounter difficult or unsettling times. We would like to support wherever we can, from mindfulness practice to safeguarding and homeworking during COVID-19. We've found a wonderful website from Pearson that pulls together resources suitable for teachers, parents and young people.
Please remember, if you're feeling overwhelmed with difficult thoughts, to always talk to someone. If you're a pupil at St Joseph’s, talking to your family/parent/guardian or your close friends can help. If you're undertaking any therapy currently, always check in with them first before doing any of the practices suggested on the Pearson website.
Other useful resources for Covid-19 support:
The NSPCC were visiting primary schools across the UK and Channel Islands to give children the knowledge they need to stay safe from harm and to speak out if they’re worried.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), these Speak out Stay safe assemblies and workshops are postponed until the autumn term. Primary school children across the UK can watch a special assembly with Ant and Dec and David Walliams in partnership with the Department for Education.
Featuring highlights from their hugely popular ’Speak out Stay safe’ assembly, the assembly helps children understand what’s happening currently, why they may be feeling anxious or worried, and where to get help if they need it.
