Coffee Afternoon (29th March 2018)

Thank you to all the parents/carers and agencies that continue to support our coffee afternoons. It is a great way of parents/carers to meet with key members of staff and celebrate the progress and achievements made by the pupils.

We have guest speakers and agencies who offer support and advice. This half term we have been lucky enough to have Wolverhampton 360, our CAMHs link worker and also Darren Clift supporting us.

Darren did a presentation to promote the new platform we will be launching from next term, Zumos.

The platform has a full library of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) written resources around many topics which young people can listen to in order to receive expert support when in need.

As adults, we can struggle to offer the best advice when faced with the many different challenges young people face, this platform offers expert advice to support and direct them.

Zumos is designed to build self-confidence, resilience and wellbeing. It helps young people to get motivated to improve their mental health and tracks their personal progress as they use the platform

As a school, we will be able to access data which will highlight trends and enable us to target specific themes, year groups or classes for additional support.

We believe this is an important tool for us to offer our young people, there is no cost to the school for this facility, we only ask that you promote the benefits with your children and take an interest in their use of Zumos.
