We would like to signpost parents to KOOTH an online support for children from the age of 10 years. It is a NHS funded organisation that offers wellbeing support, advice and counselling. Children can sign up to its services on the homepage. Kooth has trained counsellors that will reply to messages sent from a child. There are also age appropriate forums that children can be part of. Teachers of our Year 5 and Year 6 children will be discussing this support network with their classes over the next couple of weeks. They will not be suggesting that all children access it but making them aware that it is another organisation like ChildLine that they can use.
