Times are tough for many people right now. Parents/carers are finding themselves pulled in many different directions and children may be struggling being in the house for so much longer than usual.
A mixture of concern about Covid, working from home and children learning at home, along with a possible financial impact makes for a stressful household.
Young Minds have created a useful ‘Supporting Parents Helpfinder’. By answering six questions, parents/carers can find out how to support their child’s mental health during the pandemic (and beyond).
The Ripley Academy is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all our students and we have a wealth of resources to share with you.
The following links are designed to provide you with practical advice on areas of concern that sometimes can cause parents and carers anxiety or stress when supporting their teenager.
Remember that if you have any particular concerns regarding your child’s emotional health and wellbeing, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be put in touch with your child’s Head of Year or Student Support Co-Ordinator. If you have a safeguarding concern or query at any time, please do not hesitate to contact us and ask for the Designated Safeguarding Lead & SENCO, Mr S. Kingsland, Assistant Headteacher.
The range of links and resources outlined on this page is by no means exhaustive. We would welcome feedback and recommendations of additional information that parents and carers have themselves found useful and supportive.
The following website is an excellent directory of local and national links and resources to support you and your family.
Should you wish to provide any feedback please email email@example.com and title your email EHWB Web Page.
Thank you for your continued support with keeping our children safe and happy.
