Support for all pupils
We want every student to feel safe and happy at Fearns.
In order that we meet our commitment to BE THERE for our students we think it is important that they have people to talk to and a place to go if and when they face difficult times.
However big or small a problem there is always someone to talk to in school.
If we can’t help we’ll find someone who can.

We can also bring in support from outside agencies when it is necessary or helpful to young people and their families.
