Led by Mrs Colleen Ardley, our Children and Families Support Manager, the Student Support team work alongside class teachers and support staff to offer a range of targeted ‘early help’ interventions. We actively promote resilience and positive emotional well-being across the school, and as a result, children are confident that any issues they may experience that worry them will be dealt with quickly and sensitively.
A young carer is someone under 18 who helps look after someone in their family, or a friend, who is ill, disabled or misuses drugs or alcohol. Find out about Suffolk Young Carers. More links to support groups are under resources.
