Support for pupils

We have created this page to support you until school is back open for everyone.  If you find any links or resources that you think would be good to share with others, please let Mrs Warren know.  Ask your adult to message Mrs Warren on Class Dojo or email her.

Here is a letter to our pupils from all of the staff at Exning:

 Are you worried?

If you are worried, it is always good to talk to someone you trust, whether that is at home or at school. It's important to share what's troubling you.

All of your teachers are still working, and you can talk to them via Google Classroom or email.  Click here to find out the email addresses of your teachers. 

You can also tell us about anything that is worrying you, by using the Whisper button below.  Remember it is more difficult for us to sort out a problem for you while school is closed, if you do not give us enough detail, like your name and contact details.

How to ask for help:

There are lots of ways to ask an adult to help you. Here are some ideas:

"Nan, I'm feeling scared. Can I talk to you?..."

"Ms Smith, can I talk to you? I'm worried about something..."

"Dad, something happened when I was gaming. Can you help me?..."

Tell them about how you are feeling and explain what has happened. The adult should listen and help you.
