Welcome to our new series! This newsletter is to offer ideas and support in looking after our emotional wellbeing during this difficult time with COVID-19.

Let’s get through this difficult time together!

2020 has been an eventful year so far and the new guidelines have meant that we have all experienced difficult periods with our social lives, freedom and ability to enjoy life and our emotional wellbeing. There are moments where the kindness we receive have lifted our spirits.

On these good days, where we feel uplifted, we can do the same for others. Here are some ideas to inspire you to show your appreciation for others that you can do for free.

Brought to you by CAMHS schools team.

Dear students/parents/carers,

We would like to remind you that our school has for some time now been signed up to the department for education’s (DFE) period poverty scheme providing our female students with free sanitary products. Whilst school is closed we are will still be able to provide this service as we are expecting another delivery imminently.

If you require any sanitary products please contact Mrs Grist (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) who will arrange a package for you which can then be collected from the school reception during normal school hours. Please note these products are all free of charge.

Mr Scoot

Head of Pastoral Care

Dear student,

 

During your time at Stratton, you have been able to access student support for advice & guidance. In the event of a school closure, we want to ensure you are safe and still have access to support so we have collated some information for you below which we hope you will find helpful.
