Kids - need help?
If you have any worries about how your feel, bullying or online safety please use the button below to TELL US.
What we are doing to make sure we keep you safe
Making sure that you are safe both at school and at home is our top priority. We do lots of work in school to ensure that you know how to keep safe - we have written a fantastic PSHE curriculum which is taught every week; we also keep you safe by teaching you about first aid, road safety, water safety, how to be safe when out riding your bike, about drugs and online safety to name just a few things.
We also do lots of work about relationships, feelings and emotions because we recognise that life can change very quickly and growing up can be difficult. Our aim is that you will move on from our school and be well equipped with all the survival tactics you need! Remember though - once part of the Morley Victoria family, always part of the Morley Victoria family - you are welcome back any time and we will still help and support you...it doesn't matter how old you are!
There's always someone here for you to talk to
There is always someone you can talk to in school - ANY adult will ALWAYS make time to listen to you and offer help and advice. They will never promise to keep a secret though because sometimes it is important that we are able to speak on your behalf - we will always be your advocate. We have specially trained people in school to help in all sorts of situations - Mr Shabbir and Miss Northfield - they can often be found in Mini Vic...just ask if you can go and say hello, the door is always open!
We would like to encourage all of you to have a ‘trusted adult’ (parent, grandparent, family member, friend or teacher) at home that you can go to for help, advice and support from too. Remember your 'Helping Hand' that you did in your PSHE lessons.
If you don't want to speak directly to someone in the first instance, why not use the 'Tell Us' button and write it down?
