Looking after you and your family during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

At LaceyField, the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff and families is our number one priority. On this page we have put together some useful resources and advice to support you and your family during these difficult times. Here are our 5 top tips for supporting your child’s mental health and wellbeing:

Sharing information about Coronavirus with your child

In school we used CoviBook (available below) with some of our children as a resource to provide key information in a child friendly manner. It’s important that children are given opportunity to talk through their worries and feelings during these times of uncertainty in order to main good mental health. We recommend using CoviBook as a starting point for conversations at home too:

 

We also understand that being in self-isolation and staying home can be difficult to explain to younger children and for them to process what is going on in the world around them. Remember, we are in this together! Below are links to the ‘Stay Home Superheroes’ story.
