Summer 2022 Final Newsletter (14/07/22) 


Dear All,

Firstly you will be pleased to know this will be my last newsletter until September! Below are updates from wider teams and services. As ever, any questions or queries please ask!

As we reach the end of this extremely busy (and hot!) term, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you once again for another successful term. I am aware of the challenges you are all still facing and very grateful for your continued commitment and passion to your role and the impact for the children and young people in RBWM.

I know there is a number of well-know and established SENCos moving on this year. I would like to say it has been a huge pleasure working with you and I wish you all the best for the future!

Wishing you all a restful and enjoyable summer break when it comes!

Message from RBWM Youth Council


The RBWM Youth Council are currently collecting information to see how we can best help our local community. We would be grateful if you could share our survey with your students through newsletters, emails, PSHE lessons, tutor time/registration, assemblies, google classroom etc. We are asking questions about mental health services in schools, our local RBWM libraries and transport in the community. The survey is open to 11 to 25 year olds. 

This survey is critical as young people's feedback on RBWM services will influence our focus and efforts in the coming year. We want to help influence change in RBWM. 

Attached is a flyer you can use to make our survey especially easy to distribute. Here is the link to the survey in both short and long-form which can be used if you are bulk emailing or putting it into your school newsletter:

Could you please get back to us to let us know if are happy to share (or not) our survey so that your school and your pupils can have their voice heard through taking part in our survey. 

We really appreciate your support in reaching as many young people in the Borough as possible. 

Kind regards, 

RBWM Youth Council
