Dear Parents / Carers
You will be aware of the tragic death of a young person in the community over the weekend.
Our thoughts are with her family, friends and the whole community at this time.
When someone dies, their family and friends have lots of feelings - sadness, anger, and confusion - which are all normal. The students have been told that the staff at school are willing to try and answer their questions - there is also very useful information available at: https://safercornwall.co.uk/
If any young person, or their family, would like confidential advice about anything related to drugs awareness, they can contact the YZUp team using the following link: https://www.addaction.org.uk/services/young-addaction-yzup or on their phone number: 01872 300816.
We have been grateful for the support our students have received today, including from Penhaligon’s friends and our own chaplains, and we will continue to work with all local schools to ensure students across the community are fully supported.
As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Miss Claire Meakin
