Life can sometimes be tricky and it can make you feel sad, lonely, worried, nervous and all sorts of other emotions. This can happen to anyone at any time! We want to help you with any worries you have so please come and talk to us! There’s a saying; ‘A problem shared is a problem halved.’ This means that often just by talking about a problem or worry makes it seem much less of a problem, even if you don’t find a solution straight away.
What can you do?
You can always talk to your friends, your teacher, a teaching assistant, Head of Year or any member of the school leadership team. Miss Marie Featherstone our Safeguarding and Pastoral Support Manager is always a good person to talk to, or there are the ladies in the office.
If you prefer to write things down instead, then you can do so and put it in your classes 'Worry Box'. Your teacher will find a good time to talk to you about any worries when no one else is around to try to help you feel happier!
If you don't want to share your worry with your class teacher, you can leave a note in our whole school worry box which is found at the end of the Year 5 corridor near the library. This box is checked every few days by an adult. Remember to leave your name and class so that someone can get back to you.
