Parent Advice

Advice and support for Parents

We are often sent information and useful contacts for parents and carers that can help to support you and your children when navigating some common teenage issues.  All the resources on this page have been found to be helpful to parents in different ways. This page is frequently updated as new resources are released, so do check back here regularly for the latest information and advice. Please remember that if you have any concerns about your child’s wellbeing at school, you should not hesitate to contact their Form Tutor or Head of Year in the first instance. Counsellors are in school three days a week and we can also give you contact details of other professionals that can support you and your child outside school.

For any other concerns about wellbeing or safeguarding please contact one of the school’s two safeguarding leads:

If an issue which concerns you is not covered here, do get in contact with me directly and I will source some information on it for you, and add it to the page.
