Support for you child:

If you are ever worried about the well-being of your child, please let us know in school as there are many ways we can support. 

For children who need a little extra support with their emotional development, we utilise the Somerset Graduate Response Tool and respond accordingly. Support we can offer depends on the needs of the child and can range from additional in-class PSHE sessions to time spent with our ELSA. 

Parents/families can also access a range of helpful sites for at-home support:









Remember to look after yourself. It is perfectly normal for us all to struggle at times.

Make sure you reach out and speak to someone. For further support, contact your GP.
