HELPLINES AND SUPPORT

IMPORTANT

If you are concerned about your child's, your own or another family member's health,  please see your GP in the first instance.   For emergencies, call 999.

If your child is showing worrying behaviours or you are concerned about their progress,  please arrange with the office to speak to their class teacher about this.  We have a Children and Young Person's Mental Health Champion within the school who we can arrange to speak with your child if necessary.

We have listed some helplines and support groups in the West Norfolk area or in the UK which may be of help:
