Find Your Brave!

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week.


Place2Be launched Children’s Mental health week in 2015 to highlight the importance of mental health in children and young people.  1 in 8 children and young people have a diagnosable #mentalhealth condition and in 2018/19 Place2Be worked with 639 schools, reaching over 364,000 children and young people.


This year’s theme is called Find your Brave.  Bravery comes in all shapes and sizes and is different for everyone. Bravery can be about sharing worries and asking for help, trying something new or pushing yourself outside your comfort zone. Finding your Brave can build your confidence, self-esteem and make you feel good about yourself. 


Life often throws challenges our way. Bravery isn’t about coping alone or holding things in. It’s about finding positive ways to deal with things that might be difficult, overcoming physical and mental challenges and looking after yourself. 


We all have times when we need to Find our Brave. #ChildrensMentalHealthWeek


At Net School we take mental health seriously, we have a pastoral tutor Mrs Bullock who is always available to speak with privately, listen and offer advice.

We think our history teacher Kelly Roscoe has found her brave in taking part in this year’s London marathon to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity.
