We need to do our best to remain positive, care for one another and try to keep smiling! This page is designed to offer some useful tips, links to resources and contacts to support with your child and own wellbeing.

Wellbeing

The wellbeing of children and young people is at the heart of everything we do at GSP. Wellbeing is about how things are going for children in their lives. We consider if they are feeling safe, are healthy, are achieving, are nurtured, are active, are respected, are responsible, are included.

During this period of uncertainty we are all being asked to work in very different ways. We understand the pressures that parents and carers will be facing as they try to juggle their own working patterns, financial pressures, wider family commitments alongside teaching your child(ren).

Staff are on hand to support you with this via Google Classroom and through phone calls where necessary and will be able to address any questions or challenges you are facing. We do not want you to feel stressed with education pressures.

Domestic Abuse

The National Domestic Abuse helpline has seen a 25 per cent increase in requests for help since the lockdown began, according to a leading charity. Refuge, which runs the phone and online service, has warned self-isolation could aggravate existing tensions and remove potential escape routes. In the initial stages of the lockdown it saw a 150 per cent increase in the number of people accessing the national domestic abuse website www.nationaldahelpline.org.uk.

In addition to the Government guidance on domestic abuse, Safe Lives has produced an excellent guide for victims and survivors of domestic abuse staying safe during COVID-19. The Employer’s Initiative on Domestic Abuse has also published help for employees when home is not a safe place. Please use these resources to support you.
