The current situation means that more children throughout the world are becoming affected by what is happening. Many families have relatives and friends that are infected, isolated at home or are at risk of losing their jobs. This means that in addition to the danger of the virus infection, many families are experiencing increased worry, anxiety and possible changes to their daily lives.
All our students should already be familiar with ChatHealth. This is a text messaging service staffed by school nurses to provide information on a range of health and well being topics.
With most accidents occurring in the home, hospitals are seeing rise of unintentional injuries and this is an extra pressure that they just do not have the capacity for at the moment.
Kooth is a website which can be accessed from any device. They offer online counselling, as well as safe, monitored forums where young people can find peer support and discuss a range of issues.

We provide all of our students with the opportunities to strive towards academic excellence and to develop their skills in order to make a positive contribution to society, regardless of background. The students at Parrs Wood make excellent progress over time demonstrated by our results.
We are committed to building a strong community ethos and this is evidence through how our staff and students interact with each other.
