Balwearie High School

Care & Welfare

All children and young people in Fife have a right to be cared for and protected. We all have a part to play to ensure that you are safe and your needs are met. Here in Fife, we believe that "child protection is everyone's job and everyone's responsibility".

The Fife Child Protection web pages offer more detail on child safety issues than is covered here.

Parents and Carers wishing to find out more about their child's wellbeing can access information on alcohol, drugs and smoking on a number of information rich websites.

In particular,

  • ParentZone has a Health and Wellbeing section covering Alcohol, Bullying, Drugs, Sexual Relationships, Smoking and other issues
  • Childline covers a wide range of advice

To help support your child's education there are websites offering Homework Help and ideas on how to foster Study Skills.

Secondary school pupils have extra links included in their own Pupils' section and teachers will be adding more links within their own subject pages.

The school itself has a number of initiatives cover your child's health and safety such as Promoting Positive Behaviour and Health Promoting schools.
