“A critical incident may be defined as any sudden and unexpected incident or sequence of events which causes trauma within a school community and which overwhelms the normal coping mechanisms of that school.”  
 

Right now we are living very difficult times, the pandemic has led to closure of schools, loss of jobs, financial difficulties, isolation and sadly in some cases the loss of life. We want to support our families as much as possible. 

We are contactable through the normal channels should you need to get in touch. As we slowly start to return to a new 'normal' this may also stir emotions or feelings that we find hard to express whether your an adult or child but it is important that you find a way of expressing your emotions and seeking help where necessary.

Where you feel that you need to access external help and support we can signpost you to relevant services such as Food Banks and other charities.  We have our own Crisis Fund that you can access if required all please email  Ms Ruiz, our Business Manager on sbm@corpuschristi.lambeth.sch.uk and your request will be dealt with in confidence.
