Kimberly Harley, Assistant Headteacher, Herefordshire Pupil Referral Service (HPRS)
The work undertaken has been key in facilitating safeguarding issues with a child to come to the surface that may have remained hidden. This should be seen as a real strength of the programme. Young people experience so many different things and often schools see the results in behaviour issues. In lessons it is difficult to have the time for young people to feel safe enough to make important disclosures. Your programme has given a vulnerable young person the space and opportunity to display what is effectively a cry for help.
