We are happy to announce that after a great deal of liaising and hard work, our Pastoral staff have organised for the Prevention and Education Team (PET) to come into school at the end of this month to carry out group work with students who we feel would benefit from work around resilience.
This work will include self-esteem, anger management, dealing with anxiety and building confidence. Along with this and hopefully to further enhance our students’ awareness around key issues affecting their lives today, the PET team will come in to do some "Welfare Days" for Years 7, 8, 9 and 10. The specific arrangements for these days will be made clearer in due course, but they will involve lessons and work around online safety, substance misuse, emotional health, child sexual exploitation and bullying. The PET team have never delivered these lessons on such a large scale before, so it is a great opportunity for them, us and most importantly our students.
These issues affect our students daily and with the increasing pressures of social media it is a vital that we provide our students with support on how to be more self-aware and how to stay safe.
We hope that the students will benefit from these interventions by gaining skills and knowledge needed to develop into emotionally healthy young people.
Many thanks to our fantastic Pastoral Team for organising these events.
