Wellbeing Support for Parents/Carers

Being a parent or carer of a secondary school age child has its challenges. As we see our children develop into adults and support them through the physical and emotional changes. As parents and carers we play an important role in teaching children and young people how to understand and manage their feelings as they grow up. Children’s wellbeing is closely bound to their parents’ wellbeing. Therefore, it is vital you look after you and seek help and advice if you are struggling.

In the wellbeing section there is a page providing several links and telephone numbers for support services for both you and your child.  If you do have concerns about your child’s wellbeing or mental health, please seek medical advice or during school hours contact your child’s Form Tutor or Head of Year Team on 01709 828383.

Below are links to websites for supporting your own and your child’s mental health.
