Happy Children, Happy Families
At Spring Gardens Primary School we are working closely with Connect North Tyneside Mental Health Support Team to support our families and children. We are running a course for parents and children in the Autumn Term which is part of the evidence-based model of ‘Friends Resilience’.
What is it?
This course gives adults the skills to manage the many challenging situations we all face throughout our lives e.g. changes in relationships, managing health issues, loss and financial difficulties.
We know it helps to discuss these challenges with others who have experienced or who are experiencing similar challenges.
Building a support system of people who understand during challenging times is key to helping you to get through these times.
When will we meet and for how often?
The group will meet weekly in school for six to eight weeks during the school day at Spring Gardens.
We plan to run a group for your child alongside this course for adults to support their emotional wellbeing too and to learn the techniques together that will help to get through difficult periods.
We will initially be focusing on children and families in Year 4 in autumn 2022. We will keep you informed about the groups in due course.
