Place2Be and BAFTA Kids reveal line-ups for Children's Mental Health Week 2022 virtual assemblies

Place2Be has teamed up with BAFTA Kids to create two virtual assemblies for Children’s Mental Health Week 2022, supported by Oak National Academy.

This year, we’re launching two assemblies – one for primary schools, and one for secondary and high schools – to help children and young people across the UK take part in the week and explore the theme of ‘Growing Together’. 

The primary school assembly, hosted by Lindsey Russellfeatures pupils from Rosslyn Park Primary School and Seascape Primary School in conversation with dancer and presenter Oti Mabuse.

The assembly for secondary and high schools, hosted by Emma Willis, features students from Folkestone Academy and Carrick Academy in conversation with Shadow and Bone actor, Kit Young, and CBBC's The Dumping Ground actor, Kia Pegg.

Both assemblies will be available on the Children’s Mental Health Week website from 8am on Monday 7 February. The assemblies will also feature special messages of support from high-profile surprise guests, to be revealed on the day. 

Sign up for email alerts to be the first to hear about when the assemblies go live and receive other Children’s Mental Health Week news. 

During the assembly, BAFTA Kids will also be launching their annual Young Presenter Competition. The competition aims to find exciting new on-screen talent aged between 10-18 years. Previous winners of the competition have gone on to host at BAFTA red-carpets and events throughout the year. Tune in to the assembly to find out how to enter. More information is available on the BAFTA website.
