Remote Learning from 5th January 2021
The Government has announced that primary schools will operate remote learning until February half term. Years 1 to 5 will find their lessons each day on Google Classroom, and Reception will find their learning on Tapestry. School will be open for a small number of critical worker children or vulnerable children, these parents and carers have been contacted separately about these arrangements.
WAMHS in Schools
At Hackney New Primary School, we are committed to improving support for our students’ emotional and mental wellbeing, and therefore are excited to be working with the Wellbeing and Mental Health in Schools (WAMHS) initiative. This has been set up by the CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) Alliance to help schools help their pupils.
We have a CAMHS link worker who will come to school regularly to support school staff and pupils. Our CAMHS link worker helps us to think about our students’ needs in school, how to best support them, and how to refer them to specialist services if they need more help. This might mean school staff discussing pupils with the CAMHS link worker to decide what help needs to be given. The CAMHS link worker also advises school about how to make school a success for all our pupils – this is called a ‘whole school approach’.
For further information on WAMHS and how we will securely store information as part of WAMHS please see the attached 2 leaflets:
