What support is available if a student is feeling anxious?
There is always somebody listening. Whether this is the primary class teacher, personal tutor, head of year or one of the three ‘go-to people’ that secondary students will identify in their Passport.
In addition to this we also have a team of trained counsellors in school, led by Mrs McSweeney. Students may be referred to Mrs McSweeney by a teacher, or they may approach her themselves if they want to reach out to somebody for a little support.
Finally, as mentioned above, we have a team of trained peer listeners amongst our student body. This is because we understand that sometimes students would prefer to talk to their peers, rather than a teacher.
