Support for Children


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 a fantastic, bespoke PSHE curriculum which is taught every week; we also keep you safe by teaching you about E-Safety, first aid, road safety, water safety, how to be safe when out riding your bike, about drugs and substances 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 transition from Fairfield and be well equipped to take the next step in your life. Remember though - once part of Team Fairfield, always part of Team Fairfield- you are welcome back any time and we will still help and support you.

There's always someone here for you to talk to

There is always someone you can talk to in school - any trusted 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, these people include: Mr. Gale, Mr. Steele, Mrs. Barrow, Mrs. Birkett, Mrs. Fisher, Mrs. Watton, Mrs. Galea, Mrs. Taylor, Ms. Dunne and Miss Fisher. 

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 as part of Anti-Bullying Week.

If you don't want to speak directly to someone in the first instance, why not use your class worry box or take a look at the ‘Are You Worried?’ Leaflet (below) for further help.

There's also lots of help and support online from official sources...don't rely on social media - instead try these:

CAMHS Cumbria: Call, 01900 705 800. This is a helpline for Under 18's.

Childline: Call, 0800 1111 or visit

Remember, we are here to talk to, to seek advice from and as a way of getting help. Don’t keep bottled-up inside: speak out! There is always something that someone can do to help.
