Safeguarding your child’s well being and mental health can be difficult during these testing times. If your child needs someone to talk to about their well-being in these stressful times, they can access an online text based counselling service: Kooth. All of our students have had assemblies from Kooth so are aware of the support they provide. Its a free service so any young person can access it. Stay safe – The safeguarding team.
During this difficult time our children are spending more and more time on-line in order to access their learning. This is a gentle reminder for all parents to carefully monitor their child’s online activity. We need to remember to protect our young people from the many dangers they face on-line including the threat of terrorism, radicalisation and other forms of grooming. Stay Safe!
