On learning that mental health has declined in almost 40% of school children, celebrities joined forces with ITV to encourage every school in the country to set a different type of homework ahead of World Mental Health Day on October 10th.
To mark the day pupils at Brunshaw Primary School wore yellow and donated £1, raising over £200 for Young Minds Matter.
Year five teacher Daryl Cooper said: “We talked to the children about mental health and how we can support them to manage their own well-being.
“We have now implemented a 'worry station' where they can write their worries, for when they're not confident enough to say them out loud.”
