Sources of Support
If you have any concerns that you want to raise, why not use the Worry Box or our online form.
This is the place for students to report something that is worrying them, either on or offline. This can be about something involving themselves or another student. Answers will be picked up by a member of the safeguarding team who will speak to the best person to help. You just need to complete a ‘stop bullying postcard’ and post it in the post box in pastoral.
Alternatively you can complete our online form Just click the link here and fill out the form.
