Mental Health and Well Being

The welfare of all children and staff is extremely important to us at Anston Hillcrest Primary, so this year we are developing a comprehensive Mental Health and Well Being Framework to ensure that everyone has a voice and everyone is supported. We want everyone to feel that they are listened to and have worked hard to ensure that staff are trained to be able to do this for our pupils and for each other. We also ensure everyone is signposted to supportive networks and provision beyond the school.


Meanwhile, take a look at the links at the bottom of this page to see ideas and activities to support you and your family. 

Please see the you tube link for the video of our staff wishing you well during lockdown. We are missing you so much!


This is the link to the video created by some of our children!

Mental Health Awareness Week - Kindness

Letter from Director of Public Health

We have a package of learning resources from Now Press Play which we use at school. The company have allowed us to use these resources whilst children are at home. If you want your child to have a go at one of the learning experiences, log onto the website using a phone or ipad/tablet. The children can do it with or without headphones. You will need to put the compass points; North, South, East, West on the walls of one of the rooms in your house (see the document below). If the children would like to do a follow up writing activity i.e. a diary entry or letter from the character in the story, this would be fabulous. If you take any pictures of the children participating in the learning experiences, please tweet to school @hillcrestanston and also to @nowpressplay
