Having Emma coming into school as a ‘neutral’ person has been so beneficial to this group of children. They see group as somewhere ‘cool’ to go and look forward to attending. The children are able to open up in the group and talk about subjects they would not bring up with school staff.
The children we chose for the group all have vulnerabilities, and to see how they have grown in confidence is amazing! One of our children, who struggles socially and struggles with self-confidence and self-image, has now started attending the Space Bus, because she knows Emma is there. This is a big step for her.
