Helping your child stay happy and how to talk about coronavirus

There are lots of lovely things being produced to help your child's well-being during this time which may well be very worrying or scary for them. We have linked to lots of these below.

The e-books and stories might be particularly helpful - you can read them together and talk to your child about any questions they have.

Do give school a call if you would like any particular support with this, or if you are worried about your child or your own mental well-being.
