BUZZ and Pride

Pip Nix, Wellbeing Worker for Selby attended the Regional LGBTQ Event for young people recently in York. It was a great day giving the young people a chance to network with other LGBTQ young people and share their experiences.

North Yorkshire Police spoke about how to report hate crime and about their LGBTQ Network. They spoke about the theme for York’s Pride being ‘Flag It Up’, encouraging anyone who witnesses or experiences hate crime to report it, even if they don’t want to press charges.

During the day young people built a wall of negative attitudes that they want to tear down in relation to LGBTQ, through an art workshop. They did this by using cardboard boxes and using various art materials to display the attitudes that they wanted to get rid of. The group from Selby that Pip helped, discussed negative emotions and stereotypes as part of their theme

It was a privilege to be invited to attend and was an inspirational day to be a part of.


Good practice in schools

Carlton Faceby Primary School have put in place a brilliant idea to support children in their school with ADHD and ASD. They have taped patterns on the corridor floors so that children can have time out to distract themselves.
