Respect Me resource 👪
At a time when children and young people are probably spending more time than usual in the online world, it is worth looking at the useful anti-online-bullying resources on the respectme website here. There is support material here for children and a very helpful section called “Bullying – a guide for parents and carers”. You can find that under the tab “Guidance for adults”.
Children’s Parliament 👪
The Children’s Parliament had an amazing 4000 children aged 8-14 participate in an online survey entitled “How are you doing?” during the month of April. A short report is available HERE.
They have also recently launched Edition 1 of the Corona Times Journal. Created by Members of The Children’s Parliament, it is helping adults to understand the impact that the coronavirus is having on children’s lives. Read more from the MCP journalists HERE.
Psychological Service – Covid-19 Information and Resources 👪
A new section has been added to
http://www.highlandcouncilpsychologicalservice.wordpress.com/ which offers a wealth of resources and information for our families, children and young people.

In addition to this you can access:
