All across the country, budgets for vital services are being cut. At the same time, we are becoming increasinlgy aware of a growing mental health crisis affecting our young people.
For the last 3 years, we have employed a Play Therapist, who carries out vital work in meeting the wide ranging and, often, complex needs of many of our vulnerable learners. This support has been vital for our school, for families and most of all, for the young people themselves. As further cuts will be introduced in April it is highly likely that, without any other funding sources, this service will have to end. If this happens, children will no longer access the specialist help they need, to allow them to grow into happy, healthy and successful adults.
This is WRONG.
On Sunday 28th April 2019, I will be running the London Marathon to raise money to help pay for this vital service. Please support my efforts so that our children can continue to receive the help they need.
