As mental health (mindfulness) is so important in our children’s welfare Year 6 have been very 'mindful' of this as
the children have been working hard for SATs. It is a stressful time of year for children (and adults alike) but we
at BJS recognised this and ensure the children's mental health was put first during this stressful time. Started
off with a Year 6 Easter Egg hunt after study weeks before the Easter break.
Then yoga session to help with anxiety and understanding how important the breath can be to calm nerves, it was
then down to Mr Cantillon and his musical prowess to set up a good sing song and boogie out in sunshine the Friday
before we started and during SATs week we are doing Rag Rugging a meditative activity.
We work closely with the Young Carers organisation and are
proud to be the first primary school in Warwickshire to achieve
their Gold School’s Award!
Young Carers do an amazing job supporting young people who are
in a caring role. The project describe a Young Carer as 'a young
person who lives with someone who has an illness, disability,
mental health or substance misuse problem'.
If you think this project could help a young person in your life, have
a look at the link and if you have any questions or would like a
referral making, either contact me in school or contact the project
