Emotional Wellbeing Support

 

How do you look after your mental and emotional wellbeing?

 

Understandably, you may find that social distancing can be boring or frustrating. You may find your mood and feelings are affected and you may feel low, worried or have problems sleeping and you might miss being outside with other people.

 

At times like these, it can be easy to fall into unhealthy patterns of behaviour which in turn can make you feel worse. There are simple things you can do that may help, to stay mentally and physically active during this time such as:

 

  • look for ideas of exercises you can do at home on the NHS website.
  • spend time doing things you enjoy – this might include reading, cooking, other indoor hobbies or listening to the radio or watching TV programmes.
  • try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, drink enough water, exercise regularly, and try to avoid smoking, alcohol and drugs.
  • keep your windows open to let in fresh air, get some natural sunlight if you can, or get outside into the garden.

Snow and Ice

 

When adverse weather conditions are being experienced, that is when ice and snow are on the ground, all children and adults who come on to the school site are requested to only use the treated footways. We would also strongly advise parents not to use our car park, particularly at the beginning of the school day.

If you do not bring your child to school, please could you make your child aware of this instruction.

Your continued support in keeping our school site safe is very much appreciated.

 

School Closure

 

In the unlikely event that we are required to close the school due to extreme weather conditions or an emergency situation, parents will be informed by the following means of communication:

 

  • Through our Twitter pages

  • Through the school's Text Messaging Service

  • On the school website

  • Via local radio: BBC Radio Lincolnshire and Lincs FM

 

We will always endeavor to notify parents at the earliest opportunity to enable them to make alternative childcare arrangements if necessary.
