The second video compilation from Wadworth showing what children have been getting up to at school and at home since more children have been eligible to return to school. At the moment we have 61 children filling 59 places so we have reached capacity!
Thank you to all the children for their contributions. Hope you enjoy
We thought it would be helpful to provide some details regarding Free School Meals and foodbanks, in case your circumstances have recently changed.
Free School Meals
Free School Meals entitlement is different to the Universal Infant Free School Meals initiative which was introduced a few years ago to provide a daily meal for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.
In May this year, the public heath team, with help from our partners, launched a new campaign aimed at supporting young people to look after their mental health and wellbeing. Whilst this is an important issue all year round, it felt like a particularly good time to shine a light on support available, due to the coronavirus pandemic and the challenges and upheaval that this has created for young people. We know that you will share these concerns too and will be doing as much as you can to support students in your care.
The campaign leads with the message ‘Don’t put a filter on it’ and aims to get young people to think about how they are feeling, and where they can go if they feel like they might need some extra support. Doncaster Council have posted various messages/adverts on their social media channels directing people to a signposting webpage, newly created for the campaign, which contains all the information, advice and guidance on support available locally (and also some national support too): www.doncaster.gov.uk/dontfilter
We would like as many young people (and their parents/carers) as possible to know that this resource exists and that there is help for young people who might be struggling at the moment.
