Sometimes families experience financial hardship. This may be for a number of reasons, including; loss of employment, unexpected expenditure or an increase in household bills.
There are numerous support services available in our local community. We have produced a leaflet that details a variety of local and national support services. This leaflet is shown below and can be viewed more clearly in a new window by clicking here.
We can help you identify and access the support you need. Please speak to Mrs Ledger, our Family Welfare Officer.
emotional and practical support
There are times in our lives when a helping hand is needed. Parents and carers may be struggling with a child's behaviour, be suffering with their own mental health or addictions, of they may be in an unhealthy relationship. There are many reasons for parents and carers to feel, at times, overwhelmed and in need of a some help and understanding.
In the table below we have listed a number of services and their contact details. If you require any assistance, please speak to Mrs Ledger.
mental health support for children
We promote the 5 ways to wellbeing within school and encourage the children to reflect on their own mental wellbeing regularly. As well as this, we teach the statutory mental health content through our PSHE curriculum and raise awareness on dedicated national mental health dates. We also support the children’s mental health and wellbeing on a day to day basis and seek support from parents/carers and further professionals, should we need to.
Looking after and supporting your own child’s mental health and wellbeing at home is also extremely important to their cognitive development. Below are links for support and information:
