Please find below the worships which we will be sharing with the children in school this week.
They have been given to us from the Rochester diocese and we are sharing them with you so your child can watch at home and take part too.
Please take the time to sit for five minutes and explore the message that they give.
On Fridays we also hope to share in the joy of a whole school worship, led by Mrs Cox.
The zoom link for this will be sent via email for your child to join. We look forward to celebrating with you.
To Grow and Learn through the guidance and love of God.
No Printer - No problem
Please do not worry if you don’t have a printer and your child has work sheets to complete. You can screen shot them on your device and use the editing tools to write on them. When finished, screen shot again to save the completed work sheets. We will accept these and may then post them on our pages as photographs. We love to see the work your children are doing.
Mental Health Support
Kooth can be accessed via website or via the app and students/parents can self refer for help, it doesn't need to go through a doctor or school referral process: it is also picked up by trained counsellors to support the student. www.kooth.com
Young Minds offers a similar service to Kooth but the support is supported' by trained professionals rather than counsellors actually supporting the students. youngminds.org.uk
MIND are offering free virtual wellbeing sessions (out of school hours) for young people to combat stress, deal with emotions and reduce anxiety in order to enhance resilience. Further information and enrolment onto the course can be found at: https://www.maidstonemind.org/virtual-bounce-back-courses/
MIND also provide information on how to access support and services for a range of issues such as abuse, bereavement, mental
health, housing and benefits: https://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/guides-to-support-and-services/
Making Miracles are a local charity supporting young people and families through loss and bereavement, particularly as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. They have offered 6 FREE bereavement counselling sessions to any young person who may benefit from it. This is not explicit to COVID being the cause of a loss, but is open to anyone who has lost during COVID from other causes. www.makingmiracles.org.uk
