Referral

Some individuals may find it difficult opening up face to face about issues that are bothering them. That is why we have decided to create a page where students and/or parents / carers can make a referral to us about any concerns you may have. This is an opportunity for you to share any issues you may have regarding your emotional, social or physical well-being. Your communication will be held in the strictest confidence and we will do our best in finding appropriate support for you. If it is an urgent problem please speak to a member of staff immediately or follow the links available for out of hours services.

What to expect once you have made a referral?

Your referral will be picked up by a member of the Sixth Form team. Feel free to state the specific staff member you would like to speak with. Depending on the severity of the concern it could range from a phone call to student/ parent (often both) or could be dealt with by our Safeguarding team. After we have understood your needs we can then begin to find effective support that can be put in place to support you. If you are putting yourself or others at risk you will be encouraged to contact external agencies such as your local GP. Safeguarding our students and our community is the forefront of our teaching commitments here at FCHS. Each case/concern is always different, but they are always handled with the same degree of attention, respect and care.
