Student support

You can find information here about how we are supporting students while we exist as a 'virtual school'.

 

Who do I contact if I have an issue?

Your first point of contact is your pastoral manager:

If you need support at any point please contact your pastoral manager and they will talk to someone in school to support you.  You don’t need to feel alone.

If you don’t understand a piece of work, email your teacher directly.  Please be patient when waiting for a response.

 

How do I look after my wellbeing?

We have a whole page full of various organisations, apps and websites that provide support on a range of issues. This includes support for anxiety about Coronavirus. You can view our Wellbeing Resources page here.

 

What should I do if I am worried about my health?

  • Look on the NHS direct website – there is lots of helpful advice about coronavirus as well as other medical conditions. 
  • Go online at www.111.nhs.uk  and complete an online screening form.
  • Call your GP – your normal family Doctor.
  • Call 999 if it is an emergency.

 

What should I do if I am worried about my safety?

  • You can speak to Mrs Anderson and Mrs Pawlak.  Their numbers are: 07401 977802 or 07490 417698You can also email them if your worry is less urgent.

 

What should I do if am worried about someone else?

  • Encourage them to ring Mrs Anderson or Mrs Pawlak if they attend Silverdale.
  • Email Mrs Anderson or Mrs Pawlak about your concern.
  • If you have worries about your or someone else's safety outside of normal school time or outside of normal school term, speak to a trusted adult. If this is not possible you can call Childline 0800 1111.
  • If you or someone you are with is in immediate danger call 999.

 

What if my family is in financial difficulty?

Free School Meals

If you are eligible for free school meals, the government says that schools will either provide a meal in school or your family will be given supermarket vouchers.  You will receive further information about this, but if you are concerned please contact your pastoral manager.

Free sanitary products

We have lots of free tampons and pads in school.  Please contact your Key Stage Pastoral Managers and we will get them to you. 

 

And finally…

Look after yourself, be kind to your friends and family, and work hard. Even if we are not in school, we are still all part of Silverdale. All the people who look after your education and welfare are still here and working hard for you – so keep in touch and check your emails.
