A message to parents/carers
You are doing a great job by caring for your child and helping them learn. There will be days when they will be feeling more anxious and unsure of what is going on. Don’t force the issue of learning at these times. Listen to them, answer their questions, reassure them they are in the safest place. Remind them that school will begin again. Then distract them, get them thinking about something else that occupies their thinking.
If you need any support or advice, call 0121 464 4310.
Well-being and Safeguarding
During this period of working from home, children will be accessing a lot of online resources. Please ensure that you continue to monitor their usage and check that parental controls are set up on all devices.
We frequently remind children about staying safe online both in school and outside of school. Children have also been reminded of the number for Childline and have been made aware of their website should they have concerns.
As parents and carers, you may also need support and this can be found at The Waiting Room or local foodbanks.
If at any time you feel a child is in immediate danger or significant harm a call should be made to CASS (Children’s Advice and Support Service) on 0121 3031888. If you encounter a dangerous or unsafe situation, please contact the police.
