Being holders of the ‘Mental Health in Schools Award‘, it was only fitting that we commemorated and took part in Children’s Mental Health Week 2024 which ran from 5th – 9th February. Launched in 2015, the week exists to empower, equip and give a voice to every child in the UK. This year’s theme was My Voice Matters. 1 in 6 children and young people now have a diagnosable mental health condition. Last week we encouraged a 5 minute ‘time to talk’ at the end of P2 and we entered Barnet Borough’s BICS Poster competition. Our aim is to encourage our school, as a whole, to ensure that children and young people across the UK feel listened to, and know that they’re not alone.
