Now more than ever our wellbeing both physically and mentally is constantly being challenged. It has never been more important to look after ourselves and each other. Anyone in our school community should feel free to contact us in complete confidence if they are experiencing difficulties of any sort and we will do whatever we can to assist. We urge parents to prioritise looking after their own wellbeing so that they are able to be alert to and look after their child's wellbeing too. The Public Health England Guidance above includes details of how children may react to stress and addresses specifically the needs of SEN pupils.
Please also take a look at our 'Free school meals & other pupil benefits' page, also found under 'Parents & Community' for details of financial initiatives.
