Student Support at Home

Welcome Parents and Carers to Student Support at Home!

We wanted to create a space that offered accessible and reputable wellbeing support, advice, and guidance to our wider community of parents and carers. We understand that initial internet searches can be overwhelming, and it can be difficult to know where to look!

We hope you find the information included on this page useful and informative for the well-being of yourselves and your young people. Over the first lockdown, we created The ‘Student Support at Home!’ Team to help students who may be struggling or wanted ideas on how to maintain positive mental health, feedback from students has been really positive, and we encourage them to use this now we have returned to school.

The information provided here is for parents and carers but if you feel your young person would benefit from the information provided on their version of ‘Student Support at Home’, please speak to them about exploring the Team together. Channels in the Team include the following information and support

If you have any concerns about your child’s welfare whilst learning at home please contact the School via the welfare email address: welfare@bluecoatschool.org.uk, between the hours of 9am and 4pm, Monday to Friday and a member of the pastoral team will get back to you within 24 hours.

If your child is in crisis and needing assistance or you would like to call and ask advice on a mental health issue they are having, please contact the CAMHS Crisis Team on 0151 293 3577, available 24hour/7 days a week.

Children’s Mental Health Week 7th-13th February 2022

It’s Children’s Mental Health Week! This year’s theme is ‘Growing Together’. Growing Together is about growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow. Challenges and setbacks can help us to grow and adapt and trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone into a new realm of possibility and potential. However, emotional growth is often a gradual process that happens over time, and sometimes we might feel a bit ‘stuck’.

We have created a number of resources which we will be sharing with young people and yourselves during this week. Setting challenges around resilience and ways to wellbeing as well an opportunity to reflect back on times gone by, with letters from students and staff to their younger selves.

Below is the link with activities for parents and carers from the organisers of Children’s Mental Health week. But keep an eye on twitter for daily challenges and information that we are sharing with the students so you can encourage your young people to be involved.
