|I am a Parent/Carer and Want Some Guidance and Information
- If you have concerns about your child’s mental health then please approach a member of our pastoral team or fill in a mental health referral form. Although we don’t have all the answers, we are able to provide in-school support and links to external organisations.
- Two national organisations that we often recommend are Kooth and Young Minds, both of whom specialise in free, safe and anonymous support for young people.
|Free Online Course for Parents: Understanding your Child
Children and young people need all the emotional support they can get right now, from adults with space to think about how they communicate emotions through their behaviour. There are online courses for parents/carers and staff about children’s physical, emotional and brain development have been prepaid in this area, for residents of Telford. These courses don’t lecture, they explain psychological and neuroscience in jargon free bite-sized chunks.
