Spotlight on Safeguarding...
The summer break is an excellent opportunity for young people to consider their lifestyles and the positive changes they can make. It can be a time to consider joining a local club, getting involved in new activities and also volunteering, which is an excellent way for a young person to enhance their career prospects. It is also a time when parents/carers may require additional support outside of the school setting to help with their child’s emotional wellbeing.
