Children's Mental Health Week - Lets Connect! - 6th - 12th February 2023


Thank you for all who participated in Hello Yellow Day, with your support we raised £246.10 for this charity! Money raised is helping ‘young minds’ showing they are not alone with their mental health. Together, we can create a brighter future for children and young people.

As a result of our last survey being a huge success, we would like to launch our next survey about 'School Life' to ensure we are best supporting our pupils at leys and are listening to any ideas and suggestions you may have on what we can do or implement to make your experience at Leys even better.

Leys Health and Wellbeing Survey 


At Leys Primary School we eager to continue to develop a happy, healthy and fun environment for our pupils to learn and thrive. To help us gain an up-to-date awareness of the health and wellbeing of our pupils we asked them to complete a survey; you can see the results below.


We are delighted that nearly a quarter of the respondents described themselves as kind..  Other features which children liked about themselves were:  they are helpful, good to people, they have friends and are good listeners.  


Others recognised they were good at sport, maths, reading and gaming.  Some children are very happy with their hair and eyes.  



88% of children believe they will be successful in life.  7 pupils stated they wished to go on to study at university; 11 children have aspirations of becoming a doctor and 7 children have said they want to 'help people'.  This shows the presence of aspiration and an awareness of being a responsible citizen.  


When we look at their response to questions about exercise, children clearly enjoy the interactions associated with team games - with Football being a firm favourite.  


In terms of healthy eating, 77% of the respondents knew what a healthy meal choice was  and 72% of the children in the survey said they believe they have a healthy balanced diet.   This shows they have a good understanding of healthy eating and the positive effects these choices have on their body and their mind.  (Some children identified that eating too much of less healthy choices can make them feel tired and sick.)


We are delighted that all children participating in the survey were able to describe themselves in positive terms.

11th February 2023 - Dress to Express Day!

Children's Mental Health Week 

6th - 12th February 2023



Children's Mental Health Week is run by children's mental health charity to focus on the importance of looking after our emotional wellbeing from an early age.

The theme will be announced in the autumn.


Human beings change and grow – we do it all the time and in many different ways. Physical growth is easy to see as we grow from babies to children, teenagers to adults. We grow intellectually as we gain new knowledge, skills, and understanding at school, and beyond.

It is about growing emotionally, and finding ways to help each other grow.


 For Children’s Mental Health Week 2022, Place2Be encouraged children (and adults) to consider how they have grown, what they need to help them grow, and how they can help others to grow too.


On Friday 11th February we will be 'dressing to express!' by wearing our favourite colour, a range of colours, or a unique outfit and raising money for the children's charity Place2be. We would encourage you to dress to express and donate £2 if possible to the children’s charity.  


Please consider it is winter and we will be going outside, so appropriate dress is required.

We look forward to seeing all your fabulous outfits!



The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) have produced a fun activity pack; take a look to see if there is anything you would like to do:

Following a Wellbeing Champion meeting in March, your year 6 Wellbeing Champions wanted to help you take control of the stress and anxiety associated with your upcoming SATs.


Here is a Stress Busting Plan. This is what we have come up with to aid you with revision but also to prevent overload of pressure. You must ensure to maintain a good mental health and look after yourself - particularly during isolation. 


We have outlined the next few weeks with activities that we want you to view as challenges. We are not setting homework – in fact it’s the complete opposite! We want you to take time for you, to learn new things, explore new places and communicate with people.  We will not be checking up if you have completed the tasks but are available to offer support for anyone who does want it with anything. The tasks are flexible and are able to be swapped around as you wish.


Enjoy and keep safe.
