Health and Well-Being
At St Thomas More, we believe that health and well-being is important to all our pupils as well as our school staff. Please see below for more information and links to websites you may find useful.
Take a look at what has to offer! A FREE website of ideas for home learning and downloadable teacher recommended resources.
Random acts of kindness- There is no doubt that we are all facing one of the most challenging and worrying periods of our time. However, where there is darkness, there is light. It has been humbling to witness and participate in local and national acts of kindness and community spirit, such as the 'Clap for our Carers' each Thursday at 8pm. We can all do something thoughtful and kind for our loved ones, even if we are not with them. We can also extend our care and consideration to those who we do not know, especially the most vulnerable in our communities. Take a look at this website for some inspiration on how we can make others feel better and give our own mental health a boost!
Mental health & self-care- It is more important than ever that we prioritise our mental health and emotional wellbeing. There is a wealth of information and resources out there, but this website is particular useful for young people, parents and carers
Safeguarding reminder- Domestic abuse is wrong under any circumstances, including during this unprecedented period of lockdown. We understand that the current climate may exacerbate existing issues and tensions and it may be more difficult to ask for help. Please remember that there is support out there and many discrete ways to make contact. If you or someone you care about may be at risk of suffering domestic abuse, please use the links below to signpost you to support
