It's finally complete! I hope you all enjoy it and keep it as a memory of your time at South Tawton. Everyone wishes you all the best of luck at college. Have a wonderful summer - you deserve it!
Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties, Alice's videos aren't very loud. I've tried my very best to correct this with no luck. I have included Alice's videos below, so you can see and listen to them properly.
Kooth transitioning support and resources for years 6-7
As we move towards the end of term I wanted to remind you that KOOTH.com is available in Devon for young people aged between 11 – 25 years to access over the summer. For young people transitioning from primary to secondary school we want to ensure young people are supported through this challenging time and informed of the Kooth service and their accessibility to the support for their emotional health and wellbeing.
Kooth is a web based confidential support service available to young people that provides a safe and secure means of accessing mental health and wellbeing support either by speaking to one of our online counsellors and/or engaging in our Kooth community online with the range of therapeutic support tools we have online.
For your students transitioning from Year 6-7 and to support you in signposting Kooth.com to those young people a short presentation video has been shared with you to show with these students for an online assembly that explains the Kooth service in a little more detail.
The transition video can be accessed here where you will need to choose the video named ‘Transition Vid’ (Carina). This is a video (8mins 30sec) to be shown to students transitioning into secondary school.
Please find attached an introduction and assurance letter for schools as well as a letter for parents and carers. Please contact Carina Miles firstname.lastname@example.org on 07507 946564 / 020 398 49337 if you would like any further information or resources.

Tomorrow morning, (Thursday 9th July) Mr Derek Brett & Mrs Bernie Hatchipuka, from Okehampton College, will be visiting Mrs Everett’s Group 6 'bubble' in school, at 9:30am. The College staff will be visiting school to talk to the Year 6 students about the transition to College, in September.
*If you are in the Group 6 'bubble', but not due in school tomorrow, Mrs Everett is encouraging you to come in, even if it's just for the hour from 9:30am. If you are not currently attending school, details of a Zoom meeting have been emailed out to parents/carers, for the time of the meeting in school. It would be a great opportunity to listen to the talks from the College staff, and to ask any questions you may have.

I was rather excited to receive this in the post today. Mrs Scott has sent a lovely card to you all with with a wonderful message inside. For the parents who may not know, Mrs Scott has supported the class and listened to readers on Monday afternoons for the past two years. We were very fortunate to even have her share some of her family’s World War Two history with us.
It is such a kind thought of hers to think of you all and take the time to send you all a card with such a personal message - thank you Mrs Scott!
