Mentally Healthy Schools is a website that is specialising in helping schools start to tackle mental health issues.

It can feel difficult to start a conversation with children about mental health. This may be because you don’t feel equipped with the information you think you may need, or lack confidence about how you even open up the conversation. Adults can also be concerned that they may not have the answers to children’s questions or that they might say something ‘wrong’.

But the good news is that you are used to working with children and are able to use language that they can understand. There are also a number of excellent resources available to help.”(Mentally Healthy Schools)

The sections covered on the site are:

  • Why talk to children about mental health?
  • What schools can do
  • Starting a conversation
  • Talking about mental health in class/group
  • Talking about mental health with a child
  • Some ways we can start a conversation with a child

 Our featured theme for March 2019 is 'Health and Healthy Living'!


Our terrific featured theme for March is ‘Health and Healthy Living’. I think that we would all agree that staying healthy will help us to feel better about ourselves and assist us in being more physically active and stronger.

In order for us to stay healthy, in addition to following any medical advice or care given to us, we need to:

  • eat healthy foods and drink plenty of water;
  • do lots of exercise and get enough sleep;
  • keep ourselves clean and pay attention to our personal hygiene.

We have over 50 superb resources that help support this really important topic - they comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities, illustrations, games and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will successfully help to reinforce this life-supporting topic.


The Featured theme is updated monthly during the academic year. Watch out for our excellent 'News, Current Affairs and Fake News' resources, alongside our Easter resources, coming in April 2019!

London’s burning, London’s burning… On the 2nd of September 1666, after a long hot and very dry summer, the city of London suddenly caught alight, resulting in a blaze that raged like London had never seen before, or since. This was The Great Fire of London!

In this theme, we explore:

  • How did the fire start?
  • How long did it burn?
  • How much of the city was destroyed?
  • How was it stopped?
  • How did the fire change London?
  • How were people affected by the fire?
  • How do we know what happened?

We have 35 excellent themed resources that will provide answers to the above questions and much more besides. The resources comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities, illustrations, art, displays, songs, games, audio clips and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will successfully underpin this fascinating and enlightening topic.
