Help and Advice

From time to time parents may feel a little worried about their child's emotional wellbeing, or not be sure about how to help their child with their worries and anxieties at home. We at Scargill have an attachment aware approach to supporting our children and their families and use the Thrive approach to support a range of children. More information about Thrive can be found within the Inclusion section on our website.
 
There may also be times when parents/ carers are struggling with their own mental health, physical health or a family member. They may be feeling overwhelmed and not know where to turn for support. The good news is that there is a wide variety of services/ websites and companies out there that could help. Below are some links that are worth looking at to help. More information about how school can support children and families can be found in the Inclusion part of our website, along with the Pupil Premium section.
