Wellbeing Advice for Parents and Carers
Wellbeing Support for Parents/Carers
Being a parent or carer of a secondary school age child has its challenges. As we see our children develop into adults and support them through the physical and emotional changes. As parents and carers we play an important role in teaching children and young people how to understand and manage their feelings as they grow up. Children’s wellbeing is closely bound to their parents’ wellbeing. Therefore, it is vital you look after you and seek help and advice if you are struggling.
In the useful links and websites section there is a page providing several links and telephone numbers for support services for both you and your child. If you do have concerns about your child’s wellbeing or mental health, please seek medical advice or during school hours contact your child’s Form Tutor or Year Leaders on 01909 550066. Email addresses for Year Leaders can be found on the school mental health contacts link below. You may also be able to find some useful tips in the downloadable help guides in our Downloadable Advice and Wellbeing Guides section. There are also some useful wellbeing apps available in Recommended Apps.
