Your Space Information for Parents and Carers

Dear Parent/Carers,


We would like to inform you that Deans Community High School are working with a provision called YOUR SPACE to improve the confidence and well-being of young people. The service has been designed and will be delivered by two qualified and registered counsellors/psychotherapists Natalie Gibb and Jacqueline Dow. 


Your Space will provide emotional and therapeutic support to students, families, and consultancy to staff. The service offers students a space to express themselves through talking and creative work, to think about any worries that they may have.


Lunchtime Drop in

One of the most popular aspects on offer at Deans Community High School will be the lunchtime drop in. It is open to all students and they can make an appointment to spend 15 minutes with Natalie or Jacqueline, either by themselves or with a group of friends. Students often talk about friendships or any worries they may have.



Parental Consent

Unless we hear otherwise from you, Deans Community High School and YOUR SPACE will assume that all students have their parent/carer’s permission to come along if they so choose. We also assume that you are happy for the school to share with YOUR SPACE your child’s name, date of birth, gender and ethnicity for evaluation purposes. This information will be stored securely and anonymised.



Please contact Jacqueline Dow or Natalie Gibb at Deans Community High School should you have any questions.  Alternatively, if you do not want your child to participate in lunchtime drop in, you may let staff know by Friday 16th March 2018.  (By phone, email to the school mailbox or write a letter).
