Wellbeing advice for coming back to school

We're excited to be welcoming all students back to Beths from the first week of September.  Please be assured we've followed all Government guidelines and taken great care to ensure we'll be as safe as possible.  However, this means that things won't be the same as they were before lockdown but all these changes and new procedures will be thoroughly explained to students and parents before school starts.

In the meantime, we recognise that returning to school after so along away may be difficult for some and so have put together a list of helpful wellbeing resources for you.
