Mental Health Support
Our school is linked to the Mental Health Support team which provides support for parents of children who are presenting with mild anxiety or behavioural issues. The team work with parents to support parents to identify goals in relation to their child and develop techniques to manage worry or tricky behaviours. The service is free and confidential and you can be referred via the Mental Health lead in the school Louise Tombleson . Please speak to Louise if you have any issues in relation to your child’s wellbeing, who will then consider whether a referral to the Mental Health Support team would be appropriate.
Helpline for victims of sexual abuse in schools
Sexual abuse in any form is unacceptable.
A dedicated helpline is now open to support anyone who has been a victim of sexual abuse.
The helpline is run by the NSPCC and will provide victims of abuse with the appropriate support, advice and onward action, including on contacting professionals or the police if they wish. The helpline will also provide support to parents and professionals too.
