Support During Lockdown
With school closed and with you and your family having to stay at home this can be difficult to understand and to cope with at times. Thinking positively and looking to find good things around you and your family can really help you. Keeping a routine, helping children to complete some school work, taking exercise and taking time for yourself are very important to help keep yourself and your family feeling good. This is so important for all. But there are times when we may all feel overwhelmed with the situation and it is important to recognise that this is ok and perfectly natural. It can be how we help ourselves and those around us at these times that can make the most difference and not just being angry or upset with ourselves.
To help you take time for yourself or to help you think and feel positive here are some useful websites and resources for you and your family. Take a look ......They may really help!

Pastoral Support for Families
There are times when we all need a little help. Maybe we just need a chance to talk or just to be able to share with someone how we feel. Or maybe we want somebody to help us solve an issue that has been worrying us or that we have been thinking about for a while. This is where our Pastoral Support Team can be there to support or help you or a member of your family.
At St Mary’s Farnham Royal we want everybody who is part of our school community to feel they are doing and being the best they can be, giving their all and striving for personal success in all things. This is the same for not only you as pupils but also for the adults that work in school and for your adults at home. But to be able to do and be the best that you can, you need to feel the best that you can and there are times when we all need some help and support to feel the best that we can. This is where the Pastoral Support Team aim to help.
So who are the Pastoral Support Team?
Well actually every adult working at school helps to make up part of the Pastoral Support Team at SMFR. We all work together to ensure you all feel safe, cared for, have someone to talk to and can share worries or issues you have. These could be about you or about someone you care about. Mr Farmer is our Pastoral Support Leader.
Who does the Pastoral Support Leader work with?
Individual or groups of children.
Teachers and other members of staff.
Parents and Carers.
External agencies that can support children or families such as Social Services, Local Authority Agencies, Health professionals, the Police, Local support groups and housing agencies.
