COVID-19 Update

We have today, 18 November 2020, had confirmation of a case of COVID-19 in the school community. A small  number of students have been identified as having been in close contact and therefore have been asked to self isolate via a letter that was emailed home today. All other parents/carers will have received a general information letter only. Click here to read the All Parents letter home.

 


Head Teacher, Mr Reid, has sent a letter home to all parents regarding recent Government changes to the requirement to wear face masks in educational settings. Click here to read.

Impact of COVID-19 Lockdown

Students who are worried or anxious about the impact of the recent lockdown and subsequent return to school in September might find this guide a useful: SELF CARE ADVICE

 


One of the ways in which we are doing this is to work with SHARE (Schools Health and Resilience Education).

SHARE wants to improve the mental health and emotional well-being of our young people in Somerset. We want to change our culture by breaking down the stigma of mental health issues, and by helping our young  people become more resilient so they are better equipped to understand and manage their emotions and behaviour. SHARE will do this by involving everyone in schools – teaching professionals, young people and parents, volunteers and support staff -  and provide them the tools and resources to help recognise, manage and sustain good mental health and emotional well-being.

Over the next three years SHARE aims to work with schools to:

  • Promote good mental health and increase knowledge of tools to support those with mental health needs.
  • Upskill staff to identify early signs of emerging mental health conditions, how to sign post to other services appropriately and to provide young people and their families with seamless access to high quality evidence based interventions.
  • Deliver a bespoke training package, ‘Mindful Emotion Coaching’, to Head Teachers, teachers and other key members of staff.
  • Support schools to develop Peer Education Champions and support schools to develop parent drop-ins. 
  • Provide access to Mental Health Project Workers for schools and help develop resources in schools to educate people about mental health.

Kooth is an organisation which provides free, safe and anonymous online support for young people. If students need help/advice for themselves or for a friend, Kooth can provide online support in many ways such as chatting to their friendly counsellors, reading articles written by young people, writing a daily journal and getting support from the Kooth community.
