Digital Worry Box - Are you a child and worried about something?
If you are worried about something that has happened, online or in person, it is really important that you share it with a trusted adult so they can help you. In school we have a Worry Box/Monster in every classroom as well as outside the Hive. We check our worry boxes/monsters daily to make sure that if anyone has a worry, that we deal with it straight away. Our Digital Worry Box works exactly the same as this. If you have a worry and you would rather send it digitally, all you have to do is pop in your name, your email address (or that of a trusted adult), write your worry and then press send. As soon as you have done that Mr Hardwick will receive your worry in an email. In some instances Mr Hardwick may need to speak to other professionals about your worry to make sure that you are safe, happy and healthy.
