March 2022
Stowe Valley MAT raised over £6350 in aid of the humanitarian crises in Ukraine and Afghanistan. All proceeds will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) and be matched by the government so we have actually raised twice as much.

Network

In school, we encourage children to have a network of people who they could go to if they needed support or help. Whilst the children are not in school it would be great if you could talk to them about who is now part of their network , as some people in their network may have been people in school, who currently they are not having contact with.

Keeping safe

What to do if you're worried while school is closed

If you feel unsafe at home, or feel worried about a friend or sibling during the current situation, here are some things you may be able to do to get the help you need:

Text a trustworthy family member or safe adult who may be able to help you

Call Childline 0800 1111 and talk through how you are feeling and your concerns

Email one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads at school

Emma Longworth Emma.Longworth@stowevalley.com

Amanda Startup Startup.A@stowevalley.com

Call the police in an emergency (999) or a non emergency (101)

Speak to Young Carers if you are looking after someone at home 02476 217740

Look online at support from the Family Information Service

www.warwickshire.gov.uk/childrenandfamilies

If you feel unsafe or in danger call the council helpline on 01926 414144

*If you are unable to do any of the above because it isn't safe to do so, perhaps you could alert a neighbour or passer by to your situation
