‘… we are only in a position to give when our own needs go some way to being acknowledged and satisfied…’ (Hawkins and Shohet 2012, p. 27).
First of all, a big thank-you from all of us at Laygate Primary School for the effort you and your children have put in to learning at home. We are so proud of the children and appreciate all that you are doing.
However, we understand that home learning can be difficult at times and we care deeply about you and your children’s well-being. Below, is a downloadable document from Gateshead Psychological Service to support your well-being during this difficult time and some strategies on how you can keep taking care of yourself during this period. We hope you find it helpful.
