Dear 14-19 Parents and Carers,
We would like to introduce a new support provision for our young people and their parents and carers preparing for transition from Yewstock. It is called P-Pod Café, with the 4 ‘Ps’ representing the 4 components we would like to bring together in a relaxed, supportive atmosphere- Pupils, Parents, Professionals and Providers.
Our aim is to offer a café once per term at Yewstock College as a platform for information, discussion, questions and answers. We intend to invite past students and parents to provide insight into what their experiences were when they left Yewstock. We would like to invite professionals such as social workers, therapists and health care professionals to answer questions about support for the future. In addition, we plan to invite providers from various colleges, day centres and places of employment to answer any questions that arise regarding what to expect in the next placement.
For our first café, we would like to start with a meeting for parents and carers so that we can gather your thoughts and opinions on the types of things you would like to see on the agenda for the 2019-2020 school year. Please mark your calendars and join us on Wednesday 25th September 2019 from 9:30-10:30 at Yewstock College in the studio. We hope to see you there!
Christine Chadwick (Head of 14-19) and
Tom Maher (Post 16 Lead Teacher)
