We teach every child that there is no worry to big to talk about. 

If they are worried about something, the best strategy is to speak to someone they trust.  This could be bullying, mental health issues, safeguarding concerns, health concerns, worries about a friend or sibling - anything which is making them worry.

To do this in a child-friendly way we use Worry Eaters.  Every class has it's own Worry Eater- if the children don't feel ready to speak ready to talk about a worry to a grown up, but want a grown up to know - they can draw a picture, or write about their worry and feed it to the Worry Eater. Teachers check these daily and ensure they then make time to chat to the children.
