A well-being club was organised during the Easter holidays for pupils at Seahouses Primary School.

The Wellbeing Wednesday Club, hosted by school staff who volunteered their time, was a chance for children to reconnect and have fun playing outdoors with friends.

Games and well-being tasks mirrored lots of reconnection work started in school following the end of lockdown to keep the children feeling like they are all part of a caring community focused on their welfare and mental health.

Head teacher Vickie Allen said: “Easter wellbeing club has been such an enormous success. Almost every child in school chose to attend free of charge to play with their friends and enjoy time just being kids together.

"No child should experience loneliness or isolation and to be honest we really missed the children during lockdown and wanted to see them in the holidays.

“I have such a wonderful dedicated staff who wanted to ensure the children could stay in contact with friends and teachers.”
