We hope that this message finds you and your loved ones safe and well and that you are managing with todays 'normal'. In school things are feeling and looking very different - however this does not mean that we have forgotten about each individual child and how they may be managing with the ongoing pandemic.
When your child is in school we are constantly observing, managing and supporting their wellbeing and emotional responses as appropriate. In the current world this is obviously an increasing challenge. For this reason we would like to help you to share any concerns that you may have for your child whilst they are at home so that we can support and advise them and you more effectively. We have now created a new section on our Class Charts facility called 'Wellbeing'. This section will allow you to alert your child's Form Tutor/Pastoral Head of Year to any worries for your child, or indeed if you want to let us know how well they are coping and successes. You may want to let us know for example, if your child is concerned about a return to school, exam stress, sleep/eating routines, friendship issues, online bullying, anxiety or something else.
There are the 4 easy steps to doing this:
- Log in to Class Charts (or the App) and select the Wellbeing tab.
- Click on the face icon that most accurately reflects your child's emotions.
- Add a description for the wellbeing submission in the box below the icons.
- Press send.
Your submission will go directly to your child's Form Tutor and Pastoral Head of Year who can then get back in contact with you to discuss further if needed.
We hope that you will find this new Wellbeing tool helpful and an effective and an easy route to communicate with us. If you have any issues with accessing Class Charts and the App please complete the Class Charts Log in Help form.
Please also remember that you can email individual members of staff if you would prefer.
