At South Moreton we work hard to ensure that all our children feel safe and happy at school and at home. The wellbeing strand of our school vision is really important to us, and we do lots of work in school to teach children how to look after their feelings and how to get help if they need it.
Our children are generally confident to ask trusted adults at school for help, and our staff make time to listen. However, we recognise that sometimes it can be difficult to put feelings into words and that making that first step to ask for help can be difficult.
We ask parents to encourage their children to come to us for help whenever they need it, and we keep a close eye on the children to oversee this. However, if your child would feel more confident writing down their difficulties, then please use this letter template to help them structure their worries. Children have been introduced to this in assemblies and lessons so may wish to use it independently.
Children can choose who they would like to pass the letter to in school. Staff members will reassure the child and do everything they can to help. It may be appropriate to discuss the matter with a senior member of staff to ensure the most appropriate support.
If children are experiencing online bullying or something else online has worried them please speak to an adult in school, or they or you can talk to Childline at any time on 0800 1111 or at www.childline.org.uk.
