I am writing to let you know that the 14-19 Team and Connexions are working together to help and offer practical support to Year 11 pupils during this difficult time of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Understandably, Year 11 pupils and their parents will be worried about their GCSEs and their progression, and we would like to offer our support to any Year 11 pupils. We have a young-person’s help line which will be open from 10.00 – 4.00pm, Monday to Friday. The number is 0161 253 7733.
There will be someone for them to talk to them, offer support and try to answer any queries or anxieties they have. If they need specialist support they will be signposted to the right organisation. We will help in any way we can. We appreciate that it’s difficult for some young people to share their worries with family, especially if the family has other pressures. Similarly parents/carers can telephone too.
