Mental Health and Wellbeing

Childhood is an important time to instil healthy habits and learn crucial life skills. Establishing these habits early on will help to improve your child's future quality of life and enable them to reach their full potential in education and beyond.

This page is designed to give parents and carers information and to advise where additional help can be sought.

Nixon and Nixon Flex-it Workshop

Thank you to all of the parents who attended the Nixon & Nixon workshop about the Flex-It! approach. We have launched Flex-It! across the whole school and the children will be using the Flex-It! tool three times during the school day (feel it, tap it, breathe it, move it). If you are interested in finding out more please email the school office on

Getting enough sleep

Sleep is essential for our health. A good night's sleep can boost our mood, reduce stress and help with anxiety. The recommended times for your children, according to Great Ormond Street Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (2020), are:

  • Children 3 to 5 years - 10 to 13 hours including naps
  • Children 6 to 12 years - 9 to 12 hours
