Pastoral Support Overview

We know that the coming weeks and months are CHS (1)going to be very challenging for everyone. The longer this situation goes on, the harder it is going to become.

If you or your child are struggling and need further pastoral support, please reach out and use the charities and organisations that are set up to help in times of need (please see the comprehensive list below).

At Chertsey High School we maintain our commitment to working to support the young people and their families in our care and appreciate that during  this period of school closure we will need to adapt the way we do this, therefore I am pleased to be launching the new Wellbeing Support Service that gives parents and students a chance to speak to our Student Support Lead. 

The service will offer families the chance to ask about any challenges or difficulties that they are facing in a safe environment speaking directly to Mrs Howard from 'The Lighthouse', the service will be available every Wednesday between 2pm and 4pm and appointments can be made via school cloud. 

We would also like to take the time to remind you that students can email their key workers and ELSA support workers if they are struggling at any time.

“Neither should the theatre in our country be regarded as a luxury. It is a necessity because in order to to make democracy work the people must increasingly participate; they can’t participate unless they understand; and the theatre is one of the great mediums of understanding”. https://t.co/0exsexQJdV
