Children’s Mental Health Week 2021


Children’s Mental Health Week is 1st-7th February, and the theme this year is ‘Express Yourself’.

By talking openly about mental health from a young age, children can learn to better understand their emotions, break down stigma, and feel safe enough to reach out for help when it’s needed.

Talking about mental health and expressing our feelings can be difficult, no matter our age. Please use the resources available on this page to start the conversation about mental health.

Hold Still Greenside Community Project 2020


The Duchess of Cambridge has launched an exhibition of 100 photographs of people's experiences during lockdown, called 'Hold Still'. At Greenside, we have found this very really moving, and it has inspired us to create our own version. We are asking you to get involved in this optional project by providing school with a photograph or a drawing which illustrates your 2020. You could also include a message to explain what this image means to you and why. All entries received will be added to our ‘Greenside Hold Still Gallery 2020,’ which all children will be given the chance to view. 

Please bring in/email your entries to your tier group email by Monday 14th December.

The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day on 10 October every year. This year's theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is 'mental health for all'.

In school, we will be celebrating this day on Friday 9th October by joining the charity 'Young minds' in saying #HelloYellow. Get involved by completing the three step #Hello Yellow Challenge:

Mental Health Awareness Week 18th-24th May 2020

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and in the current climate it is more important than ever that we look after each other and share the message of how important it is to take care of our mental health.


The theme of Mental Health Week this year is kindness. To mark Mental Health Awareness Week we are going to start the Greenside kindness movement. To join in this movement you just need to do something kind for somebody else. This could be be doing something kind for someone you live with; making them breakfast, doing the washing up or giving them a compliment. Or you could share the Greenside kindness movement with somebody that you've not been able to see; write them a letter, send them a photograph, or email them with a compliment. However you decide to join in, you can send your photos and messages to your class email address using the hashtag #Greensidekindnessmovement. 


We have also attached some resources to support you with marking this special week below, remember always look after each other and always be kind!
