The newsletter covers a Mental Health Awareness Week message from the Headteacher, the benefits of movement, the importance of a structured study routine for academic success, and various activities and events at the school.

Firstly, the Headteacher, Mrs Doward, shares her personal journey of losing weight and attributing it to the benefits of movement. She encourages everyone to find their own way to move more, whether it’s dancing in the kitchen or taking short walks.  Mrs Doward also discusses the importance of a structured study routine for academic success and well-being. A consistent study routine helps students feel in control of their academic responsibilities, reducing stress and anxiety.

In conclusion, the newsletter emphasises the importance of open communication between parents and children about mental health and well-being. It encourages parents to support their children’s study routines and movement activities, reinforcing positive behaviors and boosting their children’s confidence.
