Mental Health

Through government guidance and general social awareness it is clear that the mental health of young people is paramount. The staff and students at The Frances Bardsley Academy take Mental Health and its challenges very seriously. As a school we appreciate that there are many current issues that can impact a student’s life and we always advise that they seek support.

Should a parent/guardian/carer or student have concerns they should:

  • Speak to a Member of the Safeguarding or WISE team.
  • Speak with their Form tutor or Progress Manager.
  • Refer to the following links for information and support.
