Dear Parents and Carers,

Re: Rise programme – supporting children’s mental health and emotional wellbeing


We are lucky to have Jenny Reay from the RISE Programme working in school every week until October half term, delivering assemblies and class workshops to all Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children (alternating weeks) on the following themes:

· Mental Health Awareness

· The importance of sleep

· Resilience

These sessions will run within the normal school day.


RISE have also kindly agreed to run some sessions in school for parents too. Please contact school to book your place. The themes are as follows:

· Mental Health Awareness – Tuesday 21st September (2pm)

· Children’s Sleep – Tuesday 5th October (2pm)

· Encouraging Positive Behaviour in children – Tuesday 19th October (2pm)

Please let us know if you would prefer the session to be on Zoom or face to face when you book. Timings may be slightly brought forward if the sessions are on Zoom, to allow for parents to get to school in time for collecting children at the end of the day. This will be confirmed nearer the time.

If you would like to discuss anything about the above then please contact me at school on 0191 267 4315.

Kind Regards
