MENTAL HEALTH & WELL-BEING 
ALWAYS REMEMBER TO SMILE.

The physical, spiritual and emotional health of everybody within our Academy community is of equal importance to us all here at All Saints, both the children and the adults.

Our bodies are amazing machines and we need to look after them like we would any other machine. We make sure we stay physically fit by doing exercise, having a healthy diet and plenty of sleep to name a few. Our brain also needs to stay healthy too. Our mental health is something we should not be scared to talk about. We all have mental health, however when we get mental ill health then that is when we need help. At the academy we 

have many ways in whish we look after our health and well-being. We can support you as parents to help your child if you have any concerns in this area.

 

These periods of lockdown are a time when many of us are experiencing different feelings ranging from confusion, anger, frustration, anxiety and apathy, to name but a few.

These are all perfectly natural but can be frightening, especially for children. Your child maybe experiencing emotions and don't know why they are feeling this way. Remember, children feed off their parents emotions, so if you are feeling worried or anxious, they may be "picking up" on these emotions. It is important to be aware of and look after your own mental health too.

ACADEMY
MEALS & FREE MEALS

Our lunchtime meals here at the academy are provided by Walsall Council. Our catering team receive the meals from a local school and prepare it onsite for the children to enjoy. 

Below is a copy of our winter menu that starts inNovember and goes through until April 2020.

Families who receive certain benefits may be eligible for free school meals.  Your child is eligible for free school meals if you’re in receipt of one of the following benefits:

 

  • Universal Credit with an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400.

  • Income Support

  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance

  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance

  • Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

  • The guarantee element of Pension Credit

  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for the four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)

  • Child Tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with an annual income of no more than £16,190

 

Registering for free meals could also raise an extra £1,320 for the school, to fund valuable support such as additional teaching staff, resources or enrichment activities.  Your child does not need to take the meal if you would prefer them not to, but by being registered your school will receive the extra funding that would also benefit your child.

 

Children who attend reception to year 2 are entitled to a meal free of charge under a government scheme called Universal Infant Free School Meals, but your school still needs you to register to enable them to receive the extra funding.

This additional money is available from central government for every child whose parent is receiving one of the benefits listed above.

 

If you have any queries regarding this, please contact the academy office for further details.
