Mental Health and Wellbeing Guidance for Parents and Carers


The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is going to have an impact on everyone’s daily lives, as the government and NHS take necessary steps to manage the outbreak, reduce transmission and treat those who need medical attention.

It may be difficult, but following guidance on social distancing, or staying at home, you are helping to protect yourself, your family, the NHS and your community.

During this time you may be bored, frustrated or lonely. You may also feel low, worried, anxious, or be concerned about your health or that of those close to you. Everyone reacts differently to events and changes in the way that we think, feel and behave vary between different people and over time. It’s important that you take care of your mind as well as your body and to get further support if you need it.


All of the staff at Archbishop Cranmer are available to contact for advice and support during this time, please contact us via the Home Learning pages on our website and we will get back to you to offer guidance, or someone to talk to. We are used to being able to chat on the playground, so please, please keep in touch.

Our Mental Health and Wellbeing Lead is Mrs Hodgson - please contact her via the Year 2 learning at home page or school office if you have any specific queries or questions.


Please see below for a wealth of websites and resources to offer support to you and your families during these unprecedented times. If you come across any other useful resources, please let us know so that we can keep this page updated and relevant. Thank you. 


If you are concerned about your child's emotional or mental health, self-referrals to CAHMS SPA (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services Single Point of Access) can be made via 0115 8542299 or visit 

We All Have Mental Health

The term mental health is not a label, we all have mental health, just like we all have physical health. Don't forget to look after your mental health, too!
