Top tips for Well-being:

 

Be open and available- set time for talking. Use the digital books above to support anxious children. 

Consistency and routine- children feel safe with routine. Timetable/checklists. If something is changing let them know. Good sleep patterns/rest is very important. 

Healthy- encourage a healthy balance between academic tasks and other tasks such as PE, Art, D.T, Mindfulness. Also brain breaks and engaging with friends remotely. 

Eating healthy and engaging with exercise is important to well-being. Lots of resources available for this weekly on Class Dojo. 

Encourage problem solving- What are some things we can do to keep safe?

What are some fun things we can do to keep calm? Children gain a sense of control.

Working collaboratively- what activities help you to be calm? Model breathing exercises from our Class Dojo tasks.

Looking to the future- Remind children this is temporary. What are they looking forward to when it ends?

Providing a sense of identity- what’s been going well? What hasn’t?

COVID-19 Updates

As the situation continues to develop on COVID-19 we have created a full page for our updates, which will have a date stamp to show when NEW information has been added.

Coronavirus – Advice for all early years providers, schools and further education providers

The government is closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus and is taking action at home and abroad. We are continuing to keep you updated on the government’s response to Coronavirus. Public Health England advises that the risk to individuals remains low.

 

Monday 16 March, Public Health England has issued tailored guidance for education settings, this is being updated almost daily so please continue to monitor this page: can find at:

 

 

Monday 16 March, 5pm: In the first of the Prime Ministers Press Conferences the UK chief scientific adviser Sir Patrick Vallance said “that while it “may be necessary” to think about school closures, this should only be “at the right stage” of the outbreak.”

Sir Vallance added that “if one person in any household starts to display symptoms, everyone living there must stay at home for 14 days.” This is increased from the previous advice of 7 days.

Monday 2 March, the DfE have launched a new helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education.

Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:

Phone: 0800 046 8687

Email: DfE.coronavirushelpline@education.gov.uk

Opening hours: 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday

The advice remains ‘No school should close in response to a suspected (or confirmed) COVID-19 case unless directed to do so by Public Health England.’
