On Friday 8 October, Claremont Fan Court School invited pupils, students and staff to wear yellow, or an item of yellow, to raise awareness around mental health and to support the vital work of Young Minds UK charity. The day was a wonderful success and it was fantastic to see so much yellow on show throughout the school, from yellow wellington boots in nursery to smart yellow ties in the sixth form.

A huge thank you to all those who donated via our JustGiving page which raised a total of £694 plus additional funds raised on the day.

Further information about mental health for parents is available on the Young Minds website here and it includes a ‘parents survival guide’ as well as a parent helpline for confidential advice by phone, email or webchat.
