Worried about something?

Worried about a friend?

Everyone needs support at different times in their lives! If you are worried about a friend and are not sure how to deal with it, you can always talk to an adult in school.

Otherwise, you can click on this link to fill out a form anonymously to tell us your concerns.

Worried about home?

If you are worried about things at home, it's a good idea to talk to a parent about what's worrying you.

Sometimes, we might need help working out what to say and you can always talk to your tutor or head of year for some ideas about how to approach it. You are always welcome to speak to Mr Waterfield or Mrs Trueick, too.

If the adults at home are worried, there are some useful ideas on our Support for Parents or Carers page. They can also contact the school for a confidential conversation with Mr Waterfield or Mrs Trueick. They have access to lots of areas of support for families.

Worried about something online?

The online world brings lots of challenges with it. Don't worry if something goes wrong online - it happens to many people. Staff at school can help you sort out problems if you don't want to talk to your parents.

Please feel free to approach your head of year or Mrs Trueick or Mr Waterfield if you need support.

Childline can also be a useful place to look.

Worried about yourself?

We all have good days and bad days and sometimes those days stretch on. It's good and important to talk about it when we feel able. You are always welcome to talk to any adult in school and they can listen and try to point you in the right direction.
