Safeguarding and Family Support
There may come a time that you will need some support as a parent/carer- whether the concern is to do with physical or emotional well-being, safeguarding or worries around distance learning.
As a school there are two ways we can support you in identifying the level of support you may need.
- Provide access to a member of our pastoral team for advice, who will then either signpost you appropriately OR attempt to access support on your behalf. Please direct your contact to the year group your son/daughter is in OR if the support required is more delicate then to the safeguarding team.
- Provide a directory of external services numbers to contact, depending on the need identified.
