If you have any concerns or worries whilst you are in school you can always speak to a member of the safeguarding team, your Head of Year or form tutor. In fact all staff in the academy are always ready to listen if you have any worries. We do understand that sometimes you may be worried when you are not in school or you may not feel comfortable talking to someone, so for that reason we have created this page which has lots of links to websites where you are able to access support and advice. Please remember that we are here to help and although sometimes it may be difficult to talk about personal worries and feelings always remember “a problem shared is a problem halved”
