Support during the Coronovirus Crisis

Support during the Coronovirus Crisis

This is a particularly challenging time for our whole school community,

and we are aware that some of you may be wondering how best to support your child’s wellbeing at this time. Some of you may feel that you need additional support for your own wellbeing  too.

I would like to remind you of the wellbeing section on our website, which has some useful links and also directly signpost you to some resources that I have found particularly helpful.

If you are worried about your child’s wellbeing and mental health, please do let us know. We have a very experienced pastoral team, including your child’s form tutor, their Head of Year and our Pastoral Support workers, and they are all here to support your child.
Please contact us on enquiries@bottishamvc.org and we will ensure that a key member of staff gets back in touch with you.

If you have an urgent concern about your child, and you feel that they are in a mental health crisis situation, please contact NHS 111 option 2 or take your child to their GP.
