Parent/Carer Wellbeing

At Holt Farm Junior School we view the wellbeing of parents / carers, along with the wider family units, as an essential piece of a child's wellbeing.

There are services you can use, if you feel things are getting too much for you.

Remember it is okay not to be okay sometimes, it takes a strong person to ask for help.

The Recovery and Return to Educational Settings suite of resources from Essex County Council have added two webinars for families:

o Part 1: Looking after yourself (28mins)

o Part 2: Looking after your family (39mins)

o Essex Local Offer: Coronavirus support wellbeing and mental health

They include some helpful advice and information to support families emotional wellbeing and mental health.
