It was, in fact, my staff who first realised that something was wrong and they spent hours trying to counsel her, obtained professional counselling, referred her to a specialist unit and did their utmost to support and help her.
I am sure I speak for many other heads when I say that anorexia and its attendant problems give us a great deal of worry. Far from doing nothing, we are constantly seeking advice from the medical profession and counselling organisations. Indeed, my school will soon be taking part in a pilot project to try to find some causes and solutions to the problems.
