Supporting Children Through Exams/Tests

The excellent Young Minds Charity has some very helpful guidance for all those parents trying to support children through stressful tests and exams. Many parents and carers will also have older children in secondary school sitting exams this season. This can be a stressful time in homes and this tension can have an impact on younger siblings.
Please follow (or copy and paste) the following link for a useful guide on how to keep things calm at home and how best to support your children through this important time.

Please look at our Attendance Policy for further information on the school website. This can be found under Key Information, Policies. If you would like paper copies of the NHS document, or policy, please contact me at school and I will be happy to provide one for you.
