This campaign seeks to build on and support schools through Barry Carpenters (CBE) concept of a ‘Recovery Curriculum’ that considers how the current climate is affecting our children, young people, families and colleagues. All pupils, particularly those with trauma, difficult home situations and anxiety need support now more than ever. Abrupt change can trigger stress and leave mental scars.
The Black Country Rainbow Hour seeks to prioritise the well-being of all young people across the Black Country by dedicating an hour each day to help address this current national crisis. The campaign seeks to build confidence and strengthen the support young people have had during this time through positive physical, mental, social and emotional companionship, challenge and fun.
