Covid-19 – Virtual School update
These resources are aimed more at helping children understand the virus and to manage anxiety around what is happening:
The Parenting Team will continue their service of telephone consultations. Parents and carers simply need to call their office on 01743 250950 or email email@example.com to arrange a consultation at a time convenient to you.
Taking the current situation into account our team can support parents and carers with:
- managing difficult questions and worries from children due to the current situation
- managing challenging behaviour which might be a result of the changes to their everyday lives
- suggestions on activities with children
