Barnardo’s and Staffordshire County Council have created a new service aimed at supporting the emotional well being of young people between the ages of eleven and eighteen – www.upsideonline.co.uk This is in response to the number of young people experiencing issues such as bullying, cyber bullying, eating disorders, bereavement and loss, family separation, fear and worries, anger management etc.
Young people can use the anonymous and confidential service in three ways. They can log on to Upside to gain access to fact sheets or be signposted to other websites. They can also email in specific questions and have a reply with 48 hours. Alternatively, they can access a live chat room between the hours of 6.00pm and 11.00pm. To view the website click on the link above.
If you are a follower of our Literacy Pages you will know that 8 students from Years 7 and 8 have been working towards a Bronze Arts Award. On 1st July they presented their finished film at the Young Teen Fiction Awards Celebration Day, where they met authors Tom Becker (winner of this year’s prize), Rob Lloyd-Jones and Sally Nicholls.
The students based their film on the nominated book GEEK GIRL by Holly Smale, the story of a teenager plucked from ‘Geekhood’ into the world of modelling.
