If you are worried or anxious about the impact of lockdown or coronavirus on your families mental health, you are not alone! The global pandemic has caused much uncertainty for us all, so it is not surprising that it has impacted on the mental health of so many of us in lots of different ways.
At Birchwood Avenue Primary School, we want to help you navigate these difficult times and ensure that we help you find the right support for you and your family.
