Bullying can happen to anyone at any age. Being bullied at school, home or online might involve someone pushing you, hitting you, teasing you, talking about you or calling you names. Nobody has the right to hurt you or make you feel bad. If you are being bullied you don't have to deal with it alone.
Welcome to ‘Your Voice’ Doncaster. This is the space for all children and young people in Doncaster to have their voices heard, get involved, find opportunities, access information and advice and keep up to date with news and services.
There are lots of different ways you can join in activities that interest you across the Borough. See below for key information to help you get involved.
More and more young people engage in behaviours that jeopardise not only their current state of health but their health in the future, for example:
Young people with SEND may start thinking about living independently as they get older. It is very important that they have choices and control when making decisions about their lives. For young people with an education, health and care (EHC) plan, independent living options will be discussed with them as part of their transition planning from Year 9 onwards.
As technology and the internet are becoming more and more accessible it is paramount to children’s safeguarding to be in the know of what they are accessing, the risks involved and how we can encourage them to make safe decisions when online.
Children missing education are defined as children of compulsory school age who are not on a school roll, and who are not receiving a suitable education elsewhere - for example, at home, privately, or in alternative provision (Education and Inspection Act 2006)
Young people who have part time jobs often find it is a positive and rewarding experience. Many young people have part time jobs and Doncaster Council wants to make sure the jobs they do are safe and don't impact on their health, education or wellbeing.
The Attendance and Pupil Welfare Service works with schools, parents and carers, pupils and other agencies to reduce unnecessary absences from school.
There is a clear link between attendance and attainment. The more time a pupil spends in school the more likely they are to improve their opportunity to fulfil their full potential.
