Wellbeing Information for Parents

Please find below some useful links for help and support with your child and also see our Student Wellbeing page under our 'About Us' page.

The NSPCC has created a new webpage with information and advice for parents or carers who are worried a child or young person may be struggling with their mental health or has anxiety about Coronavirus. The webpage includes information on: talking about feelings and worries; keeping in touch and balancing screen time; ways to create structure and routine; and helping to give children a sense of control.
