This half-term, we have been regularly talking about who we can go to for help/advice. We have also discussed some potential reasons why someone may seek help, as pupils can sometimes be unaware of whether they should seek support.
To recap our learning, here’s the list of people that we came up with to go to if we need help:
- A trusted adult – This could be a teacher, a safeguarding officer, a parent or someone else at home.
- A friend – It’s always ok to ask a good friend for advice if you need to.
- Childline 0800 11 11 – If you struggle to express your concerns in person, you can call ChildLine at any time, day or night, and have a conversation on the phone.
- Write it down and post it in a worry box at school – This is a good way of expressing your concerns/worries if you are uncomfortable speaking out.
Help at home:
Please give your child opportunity to discuss any worries or concerns they may have. Children have the opportunity to do this in our Circle Time sessions at school, which they enjoy and benefit from.
