At Archbishop Temple Church of England High School, we consider a child’s Mental Health and Wellbeing of paramount importance and will offer support to any children or families who are affected by these issues. We recognise, however, that not all parents are aware of where to turn if they feel their child may have Mental Health issues and so we offer the following as places to find information should you need to do so.
If you feel your child does need support in school, please contact Mrs Bridges or Mrs Player in the first instance, and we will be able to discuss with you any issues you feel are important to you and your family.
