Mental Health and Well-Being

As the world develops and we as people develop with it, we are fully aware mental health is becoming a growing concern for everyone from parents to students and anyone in between. We, here at the Colne Community School want to make sure that we offer as much support for our students who may be struggling with mental health issues. This site should help direct students towards agencies, to give strategies to help students cope with difficulties they may be facing. Most importantly, to help students or parents raise concerns to year leaders or different agencies.

Parenting Together Programme

With Christmas approaching and stress in families potentially increasing, we have an opportunity to support parents to access the Parenting Together programme.

The Parenting Together Programme is for parents who are experiencing stress and/or conflict in their relationship. The programme supports parents to address conflict, find ways to manage stress and disagreements and strengthen their parenting skills. Support is provided by Tavistock Relationships and Relate and is available for one or both parents, whether together or separated and is delivered 1:1 or through group sessions.
