Mental Health and Wellbeing

The importance of children and young people's mental health has never been more critical, particularly with what we've all been through with the pandemic. At the Cornerstone Academy Trust the children engage with a number of activities for Children’s Mental Health Week. The focus has often been on getting children and adults to find creative ways to share your thoughts, feelings and emotions through activities like music, art, dance or photography.
