Wellbeing

Many of you are home educating some, or even all, of your children, whilst other children have had to continue going to school through Lockdown.

Home schooling can be a challenge in itself:  Some parents and carers are juggling their own work from home, others are juggling having children home with going out to work, others may have been furloughed or are shielding. Some families have had no choice but to keep sending their key worker children to school.

These continue to be challenging times and all our experiences vary. At Saint Edmund's, we are here to support you so please do get in touch if you are struggling. If we can't help you directly, we will do our best to find someone who can!

There is also a new advice page for Wiltshire parents and carers to support children with their mental health and wellbeing and also Oxford Health for further support on child mental health.

Safeguarding Online

Children and young people spend a lot of time online, especially now they are learning from home. It can also be a great way for them to socialise, explore and have fun. But children do also face risks like Cyber bullying, seeing content that’s inappropriate and many others. 

It can be very tricky trying to monitor how secure your child’s online journey is. Below are some links to websites that will offer information on how to make your child’s internet experience a little safer:
