Caring, Supporting, Achieving

Managing the 'back to school wobbles'...

Dear Parents and Carers,


Hope you all had a wonderful Easter.  As you know we work with the team at Action Your Potential to support mental health, well-being and unleash the learning of all of our wonderful students.  At AYP everything is understood in terms of what our brain's are doing.


Moments of transition and change are tricky for brains - all brains, children, young people, teachers and parents and carers.   Here, Andrew from AYP, walks us through why the brain finds change so hard and what we can do about it.
