Students: What to do if you’re worried while school is closed

We have received the attached information from the Children and Family Support Service of the Warwickshire County Council which Mr Harris, our Safeguarding Lead, would like to share with our students:

If you feel unsafe at home, or feel worried about a friend or sibling during the current situation, here are some things you may be able to do to get the help you need:

  • Text a trustworthy family member or safe adult who may be able to help you
  • Call Childline 0800 1111 and talk through how you are feeling and your concerns
  • Call the police in an emergency (999) or a non emergency (101)
  • Speak to Young Carers if you are looking after someone at home 02476 217740
  • Look online at support from the Family Information Service

  • If you feel unsafe or in danger call the council helpline on 01926 414144
  • Email the Designated Safeguarding Lead at school at info@shipstonhigh.co.uk (School is closed until 20th April. Emails will be monitored but an immediate response should not be expected.)

*If you are unable to do any of the above because it isn’t safe to do so, perhaps you could alert a neighbour or passer by to your situation
