Wellbeing

Lockdown is proving extremely challenging for everyone, and particularly in terms of ensuring that we are all staying healthy mentally. At TWGGS we are regularly posting information for all pupils on the Google Drive Key Stage Wellbeing Classroom areas, with helpful hints on: how to stay healthy; manage workload; mental health and signposts to other resources.
 
Many parents and children receive support for emotional wellbeing via their GPs and schools. As these services may not appear to be as visible during this pandemic, The Kent Transformation Board, together with the NHS, is keen to spread the word that they are still “Here For You” and are still providing all kinds of emotional support and mental health services at this time, with some adjustments due to government guidance.
 
Over the next few weeks the TWGGS Pastoral Support Team will be posting support
information daily in the Wellbeing Classroom areas on Google Drive. These posts will offer reminders to pupils of the things they can do to look after their own mental health, and also crucially signpost the support that is available to pupils and parents if they need it.
 
Next week (18th - 24th May) is Mental Health Awareness Week as hosted by The Mental Health Foundation. General wellbeing support and practical advice can be found on their website mentalhealth.org.uk as well as lots of information specifically designed to help to look after your mental health during the pandemic.
 
Please do encourage your child to get in touch with us if they have any worries or concerns. We are here for them -  pastoralsupport@twggs.kent.sch.uk
 
Further details of a range of services that young people can access directly can be found in this letter from Miss Parkinson.
