Safeguarding and child protection
WHO DO I CONTACT IF I HAVE AN ISSUE?
You could contact your form tutor, who is emailing you once a week to find out how you are doing. You could email your senior house tutor, who will also check in with you once a week by email. You could also email firstname.lastname@example.org
There is also a free counselling service available https://www.kooth.com who can give you access to someone to talk to.
If you need support at any point please contact one of the people above and they will talk to someone in school to support you. You don’t need to feel alone.
If you don’t understand a piece of work, email your teacher directly. Please be patient when waiting for a response.
