Staying Connected – Keeping Safe

Whilst our school has to close to you for normal classes, it’s really important to us you still feel that you have someone to talk to and that you feel safe. Although teachers might not be in the school building, they are still working, and so, there are still ways for you to keep in touch. Below are some useful contacts and other things to think about.
