Diamond Centre

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.

How to protect children from sexual exploitation

You can contact your GP if you have concerns about your child - if it is 'out of hours' telephone 111 (NHS) for information and guidance as to what to do next.  

If you have serious concerns about a young person's mental health do not hesitate - take them directly to your nearest A & E or in an emergency phone 999.
