Hello I am just wondering if you lot think it is weird if I was to email a teacher, who I speak to quite a lot about my problems, about how I am feeling while school is closed. It’s hard because I don’t think they would know what to do and I feel awkward doing it any suggestions??

Absolutely email your teachers. I have reached out to many of my students and am worried that the have not replied although I appreciate the novelty of not being at school is still strong.

We still have a safe guarding responsibility to our students even at home so go for it!

Teachers have more training and experience in handling students who are struggling in all sorts of ways, include with their mental health, than most students suspect. If you speak to this teacher regularly about your problems and have a good rapport with them already, then they undoubtedly care about you and your wellbeing, and may in fact be thinking about how you are doing already. This is an unprecedented situation for everyone, but I am sure they would much rather hear from you than you suffer in alone.
Personally, I was very close with my art teacher in sixth form and she actively encouraged me (and others in similar boats) to contact her via email or even phone when i was struggling with my mental/physical health, even if she was not 100% equipped to help with everything (now i'm at uni we are instagram mutuals ) and many teachers feel and act similarly with their students.

Email them knowing your email is not private and may be forwarded to the schools child protection team or beyond. Dont let this situation stop you getting the help you are entitled to!

thank you so much. I will probably email him letting him know how I am doing but i just do not want to feel annoying or anything.
