We know that the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and lockdown restrictions have created feelings of uncertainty for many of us. Each of us reacts differently – common reactions have included anxiety, anger, confusion and sadness.
If you start to notice that you are experiencing these things it is important to remember that these are common reactions to a time that is unusual. If you feel you need support, we want to assure you that it is available.

Looking after each other
We encourage you to check in and ask your friends if they are OK. You can also let a staff member or another trusted adult know if you are concerned about a friend.
If you have any other ideas of how the school can best support you, please let us know. We are keen to be as supportive as possible.
Take care and we hope to see you all soon.
