The wellbeing of pupils is very important to us at Morton Trentside. Some children may be finding this period being away from school difficult and may have many worries and questions. Below we have provided some resources that can help answer questions in a child friendly way. There are also some relaxation activities that may help calm busy minds. 


If you are concerned about the mental health or wellbeing of your child please contact Mrs Good (covering Mrs North's maternity leave) who will be in touch and try to support you in any way that she can.
