As Mental Health Awareness Week runs from 13th - 19th May this month's newsletter concentrates on different aspects of Mental Health which of course link strongly with SMSC.
This month our Newsletter Grid has changed. It's set up for SMSC, British Values and now has example Grids to provide evidence of RSE and Physical Health and Mental Wellbeing (primary schools grids will differ). Your feedback is always welcome - click here to let me know what you think.
I've added this month's contributions to the Newsletter Grid. To take a look at a full report just click 'Save to PDF'.
