If you are struggling at school, you feel down, anxious, stressed or bothered about a particular issue, there are several options available to you at St Thomas More.
There is an NHS Mental Health Crisis Line open to provide access to Mental Health 24 hour support run by NHS CWP Trust staff. This telephone line is for anyone who may need support in and across Wirral, Cheshire West and Cheshire East. Anyone can call and talk to a dedicated Mental Health Professional, including children, young people, to all adult age groups 24/7. The number is 0300 303 3972.
Speak with your Form Tutor. Remain behind and ask your form tutor to meet with you at break or lunch. Be ready to share the problem. Your Form Tutor is there to look after you and be able to respond to your needs.
Speak to a member of staff with whom you have a good relationship. Perhaps there is another member of staff that you feel you are able to talk to. Ask them for a little time to be able to share your worries.
If it is about a particular subject – share your troubles, concerns with your Class Teacher. Your teacher is there to understand and listen to the issue and respond accordingly. Always trust them and allow them to understand the way you are feeling.
Your Progress Leader is there to help and to listen. Always feel that you can ask to meet with your Progress Leader to discuss anything you feel anxious or upset about.Anti-Bullying Pledge
