Support for students is available from your form tutor, your teacher, your house teams or the safeguarding team. If you feel unable to speak to the safeguarding team directly, then email them on email@example.com.
TAKING GOOD CARE OF YOURSELF
Whilst we provide you with support through Citizenship lessons and form time, it is also important that you look after your own wellbeing.
Medway Children Services have provided advice on managing your time and stress levels and alongside this we have collated some helpful apps which will advise and help you to look after your health and your well-being. Whatever works for you – some of you may have your own routines or apps you have on your phone. This is not an exhaustive list, but these have worked for other students in the past.
