New mental health and wellbeing guide for children, young people and families

New mental health and wellbeing guide for children, young people and families

A new guide targeting children, young people and families with emotional, mental health and wellbeing needs is now available online.

The directory provides information on a range of general and specialist NHS mental health services for young people, including online and telephone support, together with top tips for children and families and details of youth groups as well as support available from local councils. 

Produced by Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Groups (LLR CCGs), the directory is intended to encourage and support young people to get the help they need.

The directory complements the existing award-winning local NHS health promotion websites for children and young people, which host a range of information and advice around physical and mental health, including details of local services and organisations for support. You can find these on www.healthforkids.co.uk and www.healthforteens.co.uk

The directory is available online at http://bit.ly/mentalhealthLLR

EYFS and Y6 Height and Weight Check with School Nurse


To: All Parents/Carers of Children in Reception and Year Six


Height and Weight measurements for Children in Reception and Year Six
(January – April 2023)


Every year in England, children in Reception and Year Six have their height and weight
measured as part of the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP).

Your child’s class will take part in this year’s measurement programme.
The NCMP provides information to help build an understanding of national and local
trends in child weight. It is important to have a good understanding of how children
are growing, so that the best possible advice and support can be provided for every
child and their family.


The measurements take place in school and will be undertaken by trained school
nursing staff in a private space away from other pupils. We are working closely with
your child’s school, ensuring that the programme will be delivered in a COVID-safe
way, in line with the school and local authority’s safety control measures. This includes
robust hand and respiratory hygiene and enhanced cleaning arrangements for the
rooms and equipment used to measure your child’s height and weight as
recommended in the national guidance for schools and healthcare.


The school nurse will wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as appropriate.
Children will not be required to wear PPE at any point during the measurement
process. Children who take part will be measured fully clothed except for their coats
and shoes. Routine data such as your child’s name, date of birth, sex, address,
postcode and ethnicity will also be collected.


The data from all schools in the area will be gathered together and held securely by
our local authority public health team. Please note that we may store your child’s
information on their health record and share it with their GP. No individual
measurements will be given to school staff or other children, and all information will be
treated confidentially.


NCMP 22/23 2


The programme’s data is used within the local authority and NHS to help plan the
provision of services and advice to support healthy weight and lifestyles in the area.
The information is also submitted for national analysis and publication in a way that
means individual children cannot be identified.


After the measurements, we will send you your child’s results and information on
healthy eating, being active and activities available in your area. The letter will be
addressed to you as Parent/Carer and will include your child’s name. We don’t think
you should automatically share your child’s result with them, which is why this letter is
directly addressed to you.


If you are happy for your child to be measured, you do not need to do anything. If you
do not want your child’s height or weights to be measured, please follow the
instructions below to withdraw your child out of this year’s measurements.
Children will not be made to participate if they do not want to.
Please ensure that you have withdrawn your child out of the programme by 4
th January 2023.

Number Rocks Day 2023

Are you ready to rock?

On Friday February 3rd we are going to celebrate Number Rocks Day 2023. This is a day when schools across the nation play maths games and count together to raise awareness of the charity NSPCC and their special number - Childline 0800 111 111.

We’re challenging children from Year 1 to Year 6 and the staff to come to school with their rockiest hairstyle or most Rockstar like outfit. We’re asking children in EYFS to wear a number or shape to school either already on their clothes or by pinning on a card number or shape.  Please don’t feel you need to buy anything new. Children in KS1 and KS2 could gel their hair in a fun way or just style the clothes they have like a Rockstar. EYFS children could cut a shape out of a cereal packet or wear a sport’s top with a number on. Everyone Counts Team in Year 5 and 6 will award a small prize to those children, who have the ‘rockiest’ outfit/hair or the most interesting shape/number.  

On this day, we will be taking part in a National Times Table Rockstar Tournament to win prizes and we will also have certificates for the children in school who score the most on Times Tables Rockstars on our leader board or for younger children who are Numbots champions.

All children will have a chance to play Times Tables Rockstars or Numbots in school and we’d like you to play along with them at home on that day too. ( All children have log ins for these free games.)

If you need reminding of your child’s log in for Numbots or TTR please ask their teacher. Children can start practising by playing TTR or Numbots at home today- countdown to Number rocks day has started!

If you would like to give a voluntary £1 donation to the NSPCC to help support Childline, then please give using parent pay – we cannot accept cash donations.
