Children’s Mental Health week is taking place from the 5th-9th February. The theme this year is ‘My Voice Matters’ and is about empowering children and young people by providing them with the tools they need to express themselves.
At St Marks the mental health of our students is very important to us. Students will be having several tutor sessions looking at how their voice matters and how they can use it in a positive,and safe way online. All students will have the opportunity to reflect on what is important to them which will form the basis of a wellbeing wall which we look forward to sharing with you. Students will also have an assembly from the Mental Health Team.
