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:
