Our Well-Being Matters
Although it is normal and natural to feel worried about things, sometimes this can feel too much and you might need a bit of extra help. You can talk to any adult at school and they will be able to point you in the right direction. If possible, try to avoid lesson time as staff have classes to teach and you don’t want to miss any learning.
If you feel you concerned about anything this is what you should do:
This could be a :
Parent or Carer
You will be given a key adult who will listen to you, help you and support you.
We will always look into what you tell us
The ‘Key’ Adult will always agree what we are going to do.
This might include speaking to other adults and children and by looking at CCTV.
The action we take will depend on what we find out
The key adult will always contact parents, it is also common for us to have a restorative meeting and a young person will be offered support if they need it.
We always keep a record of an incident
This is so that we do not forget about it. It also means that we can really help a young person and so that we can also spot patterns of behaviour.
5. Follow Up
The key adult will always ask a young person to come and see them after the concern has been resolved.
This will be in the days, week and month following so that we can make sure that the young person feels safe and happy in school.
The following key adults’ below will be available at different times in the day to listen if you are really worried.
