Many thanks once again to Warrington Borough Council’s fabulous Youth Service team for providing invaluable support to our new starters in Year 7. The mobile bus, staffed by Youth workers, gave our students the opportunity to discuss and increase their awareness of selfesteem and the external influences on it, encouraged understanding of the emotions that may affect self-esteem and examined healthy relationships and the qualities of good friendships in an informal and unpressured setting. The activities were well attended and we hope that this has helped to alleviate any stresses associated with transition to secondary school
