Together with the Parent Council, we have collated a number of resources which may be suitable for parents/carers of children ‘who worry too much’. This first link is a document which is split into four sections:
- Books for Adults
- Books for Young Children
- Books for Older Children
- Useful Websites
The following books are available to borrow from the school office:
