Support throughout Winter, Christmas and the Festive Holiday

Support throughout Winter, Christmas and the Festive Holiday

While Christmas is a time of celebration, we know that the festive season, the end of term and the start of a new year can also be a difficult time. This is especially so after another tough year for us all, the impact of Covid-19 on those who have lost loved-ones or have been affected in other ways, and the news of the Omicron variant.

Your school is committed to continuing to support you and our entire community during the holidays, especially while you might not be seeing friends and colleagues as you would do when in school.

If you are feeling worried or lonely, reach out and speak to someone close to you. Let them know how you’re feeling, there is always someone who wants to listen and talk to you. Sometimes just sharing that thing on your mind can instantly ease some of your worry, you might find a solution to your problem is easier to find by simply sharing it.

If you think someone you know might be feeling this way, get in touch with them. A simple message or call to say ‘Hello, how are you feeling?’ can make all the difference.

There is a huge amount of guidance and resources available on a range of subjects for young people, parents, carers and school staff. Professional help and support with your mental health and wellbeing continues to be available over the school holidays and beyond for those who need it.

You can find lots of information, support and links to further help online at  

Getting out and about can also be a great way to keep fit and boost your emotional wellbeing. Visit the Experience West Sussex website for some great West Sussex walks, cycle rides, things to do and places to explore.
