Any young person in school or college in Sandwell is a 21st Century Child
We have consulted with a number of students in different schools throughout Sandwell and they told us that they face a number of different challenges both in and outside of school on a daily basis.
Schools are encouraged to identify a range of students that would like to have their voices heard both. Schools are supported by the 21st Century Child lead, providing guidance and best practice, making links with local services that can offer support.
Students are given the opportunity to learn about a range of different topics and more, with support from the 21st CC lead and local services, how to talk about them and where to find support and help. Students decide on the topics and develop and deliver interactive workshops and events to your students and parents/carers with the support of guest speakers and school staff.
The 21st Century Child event allow for parents/carers to listen to their children; speak with school and find out about different local services that can support both their child and themselves.
