#Childrensmentalhealthweek – Royal School for the Deaf Derby

As it's Children's Mental Health Week this week we asked our fantastic Derby City Schools what they're getting up to so we can shine a spotlight on some of the great work in the city. Today we're shining that light on:

Royal School for the Deaf Derby

The staff at the Royal School for the Deaf Derby have planned a week's calendar of fun and thoughtful events to help their students find their brave!

This includes Tuesday's 'Find your Brave' assembly led by the schools safeguarding and wellbeing lead and a series of mindfulness activities on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday break-times led by the schools team of student 'Anti-Stigma Ambassadors' in the art room.

The staff are also planning to take full advantage of the free resources 'Place2Be' (the organizers of Children's Mental Health Week) offers, asking their secondary and post-16 tutors to guide the students through a daily 'find your brave' activity to really get them thinking.

Primary age students will be able to make the most of the wide range of fun activities across the week, culminating in Friday's special assembly just for them.

Topping off the week there will also be a whole school non-uniform day on Friday with £1 voluntary donations going straight to Place2be to help support the charity to continue its work.
