Helping Our Community
Some of our children in Years 5 and 6 have volunteered to become a Dementia Friend, in association with Sedgley Court Care Home. The role of a Dementia Friend involves learning more about dementia, putting yourself in the shoes of someone living with the condition and turning your understanding into action. Our Dementia Friends have received comprehensive training from the care home on what it is like to live with dementia and how they can help. They will be visiting the residents throughout the year, supporting them in various activities. They will then design activities for the residents to do when they visit our school.
We are incredibly privileged as a school to be part of this initiative and proud to be helping our local community. We will update you regularly on our progress as we embark on this worthwhile journey.
Here are our wonderful Dementia Friends:
