Young people today may face many difficult issues which can cause anxiety or distress. These might include friendship issues, family breakdown, stress over exams, cyber-bullying, or the pressure to look or behave in a certain way. At Sandhurst School we aim to support all our students who are experiencing anxiety, distress or harm in any way.
Every young person has the right to be safe and secure. No one has the right to threaten, frighten, intimidate, mistreat or hurt them, or to force them to do anything they don’t want to do. If this is happening to you or you suspect it may be happening to a young person you know, SPEAK OUT. No young person should suffer in silence.
