Advice, Support and Resources
The care for our children is always the school's first priority. Please come in and ask to speak to a teacher, Mrs Hardwidge or Mr Riordan who is our qualified mental health first aider if you have any concerns.
Many services contribute to the mental health and emotional wellbeing of a child or young person. Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) is an umbrella term for them.
Referral to CAMHS are arranged through your GP or another healthcare professional.
