Although the easing of lockdown is welcome, it may also raise feelings of anxiety for some people. Below are details of resources for people young and old who feel they need self-help.

Evidence shows us that wellbeing is of central importance to learning and attainment, with high levels of wellbeing associated with improved academic outcomes. To achieve this vision, we believe we need a ‘whole-school approach’ where all aspects of the school experience are harnessed to promote the emotional wellbeing and mental health of pupils, staff and parents. It is an approach where emotional wellbeing and mental health is everybody’s business. As part of our Wellbeing culture, we will be sharing some of the topics that have been examined in school each week as well as some of the children’s work.
In Year 4 this week, as part of their PSHE curriculum, the children have been learning about the dangers of smoking and how difficult it is to stop. They suggested that we could give some information to adults who do want to quit, so here it is. Smoke Free Warrington is a free service to offer support. You can contact them for advice on smoking related issues and stop smoking support. They offer telephone support as well as stop smoking medicine via your doctor, where appropriate. They can be contacted via 0300 003 0818 or Facebook @SmokefreeWarrington or fill out a referral form on their website https://livewirewarrington.co.uk/lifestyle/stop-smoking.
We thought we’d share Lexi in Year 4’s work as we think she has created a great piece of writing.
