I think a pupil in my year 9 class is self harming - how do i approach him?

Any teachers who have had a similar experience and can offer some advice?

  • trying observing his behaviour over time - i wonder what makes you think that? befriending him (in an appropriate manner and not too overtly!) and find out little more about. talk to his year head/form tutor - does anyone know if home life has changed/relationships in school are ok? build a picture between you all. if you have concerns, perhaps refer him to an in school counsellor as a safe place to allow him to talk if he wishes to?
