COVID – 19 Update
#OnlineSafetyAtHome From Thinkuknow
Due to the current situation with COVID-19 and in order to protect our young people, their families and carers and our staff, the CCAMHS Clinic is now in business continuity and therefore face-to-face contact will only be taking place for urgent cases. Telephone and video calls are being arranged for all other young people that we are already working with.
We will still be available via the telephone and email, however, at this pressured time please only contact us for urgent matters.
Please do not email individual workers as they may be off sick, so please only use the generic CCAMHS email below.
Thank you for your cooperation

How to keep your children safe online
There is a lot of support available to keep your child safe online. Below are some useful links to help parents and carers:
- Thinkyouknow (advice from the National Crime Agency to stay safe online)
- Internet matters (support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online)
- Parent info (support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online)
- LGfL (support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online)
- Net-aware (support for parents and careers from the NSPCC)
We recommend the following actions:
If your child shows these symptoms, please do not send them to school. If a student develops these symptoms while they are at school, we will isolate them and contact you immediately to come and collect them.
The advice from the Government today is for the whole family to stay at home and self-isolate for 14 days if anyone within the family home show symptoms.
Self-isolation means staying at home for the 14 days, not going to work, school or other public places, and avoiding public transport or taxis.
Hand washing is the most effective method of avoiding the spread of a virus. Our school nurse, Sue John, has been into every class bar one so far and taught hand washing using the glitter ball. We will constantly encourage students and staff to practice hand washing and will follow every method advised to keep students and adults safe.
