The HOPE project, (Helping Our Pupils’ Emotions), offers mental health support to children and families in Primary and Secondary schools.

Every morning we have all teachers and attending students complete a ‘reading aloud’ activity. Some students choose to read aloud; lots don’t choose to. We record on a sheet who does choose to read. If students don’t want to read, they are able to sit and doodle/colour in mandalas etc.
