Mental health is an everyday part of life. Children and teens have a lot to their shoulders and life can become overwhelming for them at times. At Beckfoot School, we care for your child and want them to be happy and ready for life in the world.

There may be times when you would like a little support with your child. Being a parent/carer comes with many challenges, and sometimes it is difficult to know what to do. The good news is that there is plenty of help and guidance around how do deal with life’s ups and downs - both for you and your child.

We care for your child, as do you, and working together with you is important to us. If you notice anything different about your child, or feel worried - you are not alone. We are always here to help in any way we can. You might just need some reassurance, input, or maybe you need to be pointed in the right direction for further support.

Please take a look at the variety of relevant websites and resources we have selected for you and our students and refer to our Parental Update Covid 19 Supporting Wellbeing, 27.4.20 post for advice specific to supporting mental health and wellbeing during lockdowns.

Keep in touch. We are here to help you.
