Farringdon Well Being
We are getting involved in Children’s Mental Health week during WB 1.2.21. This year the focus is Express Yourself.
Please use the link below which will take you to the Children’s Mental Health week website for more information.
As a school we will be planning exciting activities for the children to take part in whether they are in school or learning via Showbie. We would really like to see what everyone does in response to their activities.
We appreciate everyone is trying to manage in very difficult and different circumstances. We are always here to help if you need advice or support. Here are some useful links that you may wish to explore.
Stay safe and keep well

Mental Health and Emotional Well-being
Here at Farringdon Academy we believe that the mental health and the emotional well-being of the children, parents and staff are extremely important.
Within school we continue to focus upon well-being, especially in the current climate.
Every Governing Body meeting, staff meeting and ‘team’ meeting has ‘Emotional Well-being’ as a standard item so that it continues to be a focus for all.
As a school, we will continue to work hard after successfully gaining our Bronze Award for Children’s Mental Health on 1st April 2019 and look towards achieving our Silver award with many exciting things to come.

- manage stress and anxiety
- increase their brain power
- relax and improve their sleep
