Sleep Issues

3rd November 2021

Good morning,

Please see below and attached some information from 'The Sleep Charity'. 

Quality sleep is essential for children’s growth and development. A decent night’s sleep will help them to do better at school, allow them to react more quickly to situations, have a more developed memory, learn more effectively and solve problems, plus it will make them less susceptible to colds and other minor ailments, less irritable and better behaved!

 

Sleep deprivation causes increased hyperactivity and other behavioural problems, as well as damaging physical and mental development. Poor sleep habits from an early age can lead to long term sleep problems.

 

There are so many different factors which can affect children’s sleep which you can read about on their website: The Sleep Charity - Children

 

Alternatively they have a helpline you can call for advice.  Please see posters attached.

 

Thank you 

Mrs Hodgson
