During the last academic year, the MHST was working with Kennet School to provide parents in the cluster (of which Francis Baily is one of the schools) with an opportunity to attend information evenings. The first one ran in February 2020, which provided parents and carers with information and guidance on how to support their children’s anxiety needs. This event was oversubscribed by over 100 parents and carers and the intention was to run more of these events, to enable more parents and carers to attend. However with the current Covid 19 restrictions this has not been possible. The MHST (with support from Kennet School) has therefore pre-recorded the presentation on “Understanding and Supporting Children and Young People Experiencing Anxiety” for parents and carers to access remotely via the following link.
The hope is to be able to offer other presentations/events throughout this year and in order for the MHST to gauge interest/demand for this type of support, the link asks parent and carers to complete a registration form to access the presentation which is led by one of the Lead EP’s of the MHST Wendy Sillitoe. If you wish to access the presentation then once you have clicked ‘submit’ you will receive a ‘thank you’ message which contains a link to the presentation, a handout of supporting information and then there is also a link to a survey monkey evaluation form.
The following link enables you to access the presentation and information provided.
We hope that you find this useful. Please do let me know if you have any questions or queries. If you are concerned about your child’s needs then you should contact Miss Hobbs as the school SMHL, who in turn can contact the MHST directly.
