Mental Health Week

Dear parents/carers

Mental Health Awareness Week takes place this week, and this year’s theme is kindness. The week aims to raise awareness and to promote the message of good mental health for all.

Kindness and mental health are deeply connected. At this difficult time, we want to celebrate the many examples of exceptional kindness we are seeing in our community and schools, as people go above and beyond to make a positive difference.

We are asking children to award these Kindness Cups during Mental Health Awareness Week (18-24 May).

The Mental Health Foundation defines kindness as: “doing something towards yourself and others, motivated by genuine desire to make a positive difference”.

The Place2Be Kindness Cups provide an opportunity to recognise the children, parents/carers and other individuals who have made a positive difference through their kindness at this challenging time.

Plac2Be have provided lots of resources to make awarding your Kindness cups as easy as possible.  There is a printable version and a PDF editable version so you can add the name of your recipient (this version is good if you are going to send it remotely by email).

There is also a printable colour in sheet and instructions on how to make your own trophy at home. Click on the link to view: create your own/colour in kindness cup

If you would like to share your nominations, email your photos, screenshots etc to and I will post these on the school website to share with everyone.

Keep safe and be kind
