We believe that the happiness and well- being of all our young people is paramount. At the same time it is necessary to acknowledge that adolescence can be a challenging time for young people who such a lot of physical, mental and spiritual change.
Reporting concernsAll members of staff have a duty of care towards the young person however, it is best to first contact your daughter’s tutor, the Pastoral Support Managers, The Directors of Learning or the SENCo. Young people can also self -refer to our highly qualified School Counsellor. All are available to listen to and discuss with both you and your daughter why she is feeling in need of support and what would be the best plan of action.
- Should the concerns be persistent it may be necessary for a referral to be made to an outside agency such as the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. (Camhs)
You should also feel free to contact your daughter’s subject teachers if you have any concerns.
Opportunities for pupils to learn how to look after their well- being and mental health are introduced through PSHE.
