Independent support for parents (confidential helpline) click here or call 0808 800 2222.
Curriculum: Embedded within the curriculum are many opportunities for us to teach pupils how to stay safe. This includes education relating to online safely, drugs, alcohol, sexual health, consent, coercion, the risks and benefits of social media plus much more. Speak to your child's tutor for more information.
Attendance: One of the best ways of keeping your child safe is to ensure that they attend school every day. If a child does not attend when they are expected telephone calls are made to parents/carers; if the matter remains unresolved the school's Family Support team will make a home visit to offer additional support.
Pastoral Support: Every pupil has a Personal Tutor to whom they can turn if they are worried, anxious or curious with regards issues that they encounter both in and out of school. Additionally the school has a Wellbeing Team that works very hard to support children and their families. All pupils can speak, in confidence, to Bonnie in the Wellbeing Office.
Mental Health advice for parents: The school works closely with with local Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) as well as other local providers of mental health support for children. Mental health advice for parents click here (Andover Mind)
