If you have followed the news story regarding the tragic death of Molly Russell (14) you will note that her father places heavy criticism on social media content which sensationalises self-harm and suicide. We cannot deny that our children face many pressures today and are at times, searching desperately for ways to cope. Here at VCB we do not shy away from mental health issues and take an active role in teaching our pupils resilience and healthy coping strategies. If you are concerned that your child is self – harming, please look at the following guide entitled Coping with Self Harm - a guide for parents and carers.
In VCB we want you to be confident in who you are. We delight in the diversity of our community and celebrate your unique talents, skills and ambitions.
Beauty is being real and accepting you are special, with incredible gifts and potential. Never try to change who you are to fit in with what the media says is beautiful.
As we discussed in assembly, character counts and our core values help us to be the best version of ourselves. Beauty is much more than airbrushed photos!
