Who Can Help?

At times, we all need advice, reassurance or support. At school there are several people who can help you.

  • Contact your Form Tutor or Head of Year
  • Speak to the Key Stage Student Support (Mrs Weight, Miss Graham, Mrs Wilkins/Mrs Price) or Mrs Shann (School Health Advisor)
  • Peer Listeners – these are Year 12 students who remember what it was like to be a KS3 or 4 student more easily than a member of staff can! You can speak to them when they visit your form each week or pop in to the weekly chat/games session that they run on FRIDAY LUNCHTIMES in ROOM 12.

If you are concerned about the PHYSICAL OR EMOTIONAL HEALTH of yourself, a family member or a friend there are several people who can help:

  • School Counsellors – There is a counsellor in school every day this academic year, who meet students on an appointment basis. Mr Farrell can arrange this for you.
  • School Nursing Service –Due to staffing issues, the school nurses (based at Buckingham Hospital) cannot run a weekly lunchtime drop-in service this academic year but you can contact them directly at: Buc-tr.schoolnursing@nhs.net.

Remember: There are a lot of useful posters, leaflets and outside agency contact details in the Life Advice Room. If you are passing and it’s free just pop in and have a look. The Health and Wellbeing section on the website also contains helpful information.

There are many support workers who we can call upon to help you – just ask and if we can’t help, we can put you in contact with someone who can.
