The Safeguarding and Wellbeing Team

 

Welcome to the Exeter Safeguarding and Wellbeing Team page.

Our role is to provide support to the whole school community. We are here to support parents with any aspects of parenting or any worries you may have.  We also work to remove any barriers to learning for children whether this be due to attendance or emotional wellbeing.

We have a range of skills and expertise within our team, but we also work closely with a range of external agencies who we can sign post you to for additional support.

You can contact the Safeguarding and Wellbeing Team for help and support via the school office or by emailing: safeguarding@exeteralc.com.

Mental Health and Wellbeing Support

Miss Doherty, Miss Heron and Mrs Lloyd are all qualified Mental Health First Aiders.   We can provide support and advice to young people who are experiencing poor mental health and we can sign post them to the correct services and support agencies.

We also teach about mental health and wellbeing as part of our PSHE curriculum so that all children are aware of the importance of looking after our mental health.
