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.

Support During the Holidays

We know lots of you will be looking forward to the holidays and having some time to relax and unwind. We are also aware though, that some of you might struggle with being away from school, with the loss of routine, availability to see friends, or just find that they have a dip in their mental health whilst we are away.

Below are a number of organisations available both online and face to face if you are struggling.

Remember it is okay not to be okay but remember you are never alone!

We hope you all have a safe and enjoyable summer holiday.

Take care,

Student Support
