Wellbeing

Wellbeing is not just important to children but to all of us. For success of pupils in the school, it is vital that parents/carers and staff recognize wellbeing as a fundamental achievement in life.

It is really common for children to be experiencing some of the following challenges:

•  Worries – for example worries about leaving the house, returning to school and being separated from their parent/caregiver

•  Behaviour difficulties – for example not listening to instructions, rudeness and acting out


Lots of parents are also feeling more worried than usual and are unsure about how to manage some of these challenges. This is understandable and, if you are experiencing any of the above, The Emotional Wellbeing Service may be able to help! 

The Emotional Wellbeing Service is a team of practitioners who are usually based in school, and they offer support to parents of primary school children. Over summer, the Emotional Wellbeing Service are offering virtual 1:1 sessions, workshops and groups. Please read the attached flyer for more information and if you would like to enquire further about this, you can submit the attached referral form to them directly during the school holidays – InfoMertonWP@swlstg.nhs.uk

Additionally, The South West London Commissioning Group has created a website with Guidance and advice for children, young people, parents, carers and teachers. Please have a look at it, there are a wealth of resources including transition back to school
