Starfish Top Tips


Below is a note and further information provided by one of our Assistant Heads:

To all of our families,

The following months are going to be very difficult for many people not only for their physical  health but the knock on effect this can have on finances and mental health. 'Early Health' have provided some details and information that may be able to help with these issues.

We also recognise that for many of you it will feel quite isolating and practical things, for example shopping, will be increasingly difficult with your child accompanying you. For this reason I have also attached two information sheets about gaining help with food shopping and social isolation. Please be aware though that these were written before the Coronavirus outbreak and the services may have changed or been adjusted accordingly.

All of the relevant information we have received has been added in the documents below.

Crisis and Urgent Financial Help Information

Mental Health Support Information

Social Isolation Information

Access to Food Information

Access to Technology Information

Early Help will continue to provide updates and information which I will pass on. The information they provide specifically in relation to the Coronavirus pandemic can be found below:

Covid-19 Family Resource Pack

Supportive Parenting Advice

Norwich Help Bulletin

Food Support in the Norwich Area

We know this is a frightening time but we are a strong community with dedicated parents and staff who will all work together to support each other and our young people through this.

If you need support or have a question at this time then please do email me using the address cmcleod9nru@nsix.org.uk and I will either respond directly or pass your question or worry on to the relevant person who will be able to best support you.

I can’t promise to have the answers but I will listen.

Please stay safe

Cathie (Assistant Head)
