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.
