Help & Advice for Students

Need To Let Someone Know About A Concern?

The Green Button allows members of The Swan School community – students, staff, or parents/carers – to contact by email the individual responsible for safeguarding at the school. You can use the Green Button to let us know if you concerned about things at home, a situation with a member of staff or something going on with students inside or outside school. For example, this may include social and emotional issues, bullying, or friendship/relationship problems. Please note that The Green Button is not monitored 24 hours a day and may not be checked during the school holidays. 

Counselling service at The Swan School

At The Swan School, we care for our students’ mental health and wellbeing and we support them in many ways. However, if you feel that you need extra help because things are especially tough, you might request to attend counselling within the school. You can ask your tutor or the pastoral team to refer you or you can refer yourself by emailing [email protected].uk. Your request will be kept confidential.
