Useful Information and Links to Other Services

We understand that there are a whole range of factors that can affect children and families, which can provoke a number of emotions and that sometimes it is hard to cope with the stress associated with different situations.  There are always staff on hand within school to support you.  Don't hesitate to approach our  Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Lead in school, Mrs Pat Barker.  

However, we have also put together some resources and services below, which might help you and your family to cope. Please seek help if you are struggling or you know someone who is finding it hard.

 Northorpe Hall 

Our Mental Health Support Team are based at Northorpe Hall.  They offer a range of support for both parents and young people around a range of emotional well-being and mental health subjects. 

They have a website with a range of resources, including links to useful information around understanding and supporting children’s mental health and emotional wellbeing.  


Public Health England: Every Mind Matters campaign

Most families have experienced upheaval in their daily lives during the pandemic. With children and young people now back at school or college, the new Public Health England (PHE) Better Health – Every Mind Matters campaign provides NHS-endorsed tips and advice to help children and young people’s mental wellbeing, and equip parents and carers with the knowledge to support them.

The new advice available on the Every Mind Matters website has been developed in partnership with leading children and young people’s mental health charities, including Young MindsThe MixPlace2Be and The Anna Freud Centre. It is designed to help parents and carers spot the signs that children may be struggling with their mental health and support them, and also provides advice that can help maintain good mental wellbeing. The site also provides tools to help young people build resilience and equips them to look after their mental wellbeing.


Domestic Abuse

Victims of domestic abuse will be able to access safe spaces at Boots pharmacies consultation rooms where they can contact specialist domestic abuse services for support and advice. Launched by charity Hestia’s UK SAYS NO MORE campaign, the scheme is in response to the desperate situation facing many victims who are isolating with perpetrators during lockdown.   


People experiencing domestic abuse can use Boots Pharmacies as safe spaces in conjunction with Hestia - individuals just need to ask to use the consultation rooms. Link to press release from Hestia is below:
