Children's Mental Health Week
5-11 February 2018
This Children’s Mental Health Week, children, young people and adults are being encouraged to celebrate their uniqueness. It’s all about #BeingOurselves!
When we have a positive view of ourselves it can help us to cope with life’s challenges, and recognising the different qualities of others can allow us to connect with those around us – which is vital for our own and others’ wellbeing.
At St. Anthony of Padua school, the children will be completing activities about this theme.
"Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you.”

Year 1 - Safer Internet Day
To celebrate internet day Year One learnt about their 'Digital Footprint' and what it meant, relating it to footprints in the sand on a beach. We talked about how we could have a positive 'Digital Footprint', and designed posters that represented their personal online footprints. Around our footprints we drew pictures of different things we like to access online and what we use to access them, and then we decorated the inside of the footprint to represent the positive space we want to create on the internet.
We are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC by taking part in their Number Day on Friday 2 February 2018.
The NSPCC believes that all children deserve a childhood free from harm but, sadly, that’s not the case for many children. That’s why the NSPCC is fighting for every childhood and working to help keep children safe from abuse.
The NSPCC needs our support. By raising money, we can help to fund their vital services such as Childline – the helpline that’s always there for children and young people whatever their problem or concern.
On Friday 2nd February, we will be taking part in Dress up for Digits and pupils will be invited to wear an item of clothing with a number on it and donate £1.00 for the NSPCC. During the day the children will also complete some exciting mathematical activities.
