Good morning and Happy New Year from all at Beam!

Please find attached our new Beam leaflet, redesigned for 2019! Also included is our calendar outlining our workshop offer for the next few months.


At our Wellington venue Why Worry, an anxiety workshop, is running for children and young people aged 10+. This runs on a Tuesday from 4.30-5.30.

At our Shrewsbury venue, Mindful Moments, our mindfulness workshop, is running for any children and young people who access Beam, and parents are welcome to attend this with their children. This runs on a Thursday from 4.30-5.30.


Commencing 26th February, we are offering Understanding Emotions, a workshop aimed at primary-aged children. This will run from both our Wellington and Shrewsbury venues.

Beginning in April, we will be offering group support within our drop-in relating to exam and school stress.


Facilitated by Beam practitioners, Hot Topics is an opportunity for young people aged 12+ to lead a conversation about a topic of their choice with other young people. This offers the opportunity for exploration of ideas and other points of view within a safe environment at our Beam venue in Wellington. This will be held on the last Wednesday of every month from 5-6pm.

**As always, children and young people need to have previously registered with Beam, and attended one of our drop-in sessions before attending a group or workshop.**

If you would like to be sent the electronic versions of the flyers for any of the above, please contact us and we will be happy to send these over!


We are really excited to let you know that Beam will be operating in Ludlow from February 2019! Starting on 6th February, our drop-in will run on the first and third Wednesday of each month from Ludlow Youth Centre. The final touches are being added to our promotional information for this and it will be sent out to you as soon as possible. This will include a full list of dates that we will be open at this venue. Watch this space!

Spring letter

Dear All,

Welcome back and Happy New Year!

As always, we have a busy term ahead of us with lots of exciting activities to challenge your child to reach their full potential.

As with last term we have two school priorities: Reading and Oracy

Every classroom has a new reading corner with a range of new books and resources. These will be added to over the term and we are encouraging pupils to read every night. Reading diaries are checked every Friday and prizes given. In Oracy we are focusing on how we can develop our language to understand and will be completing a project with the University of Wolverhampton.

We will be working with the charity Bedazzle, to further help pupils develop their learning resilience. They will be working with classes and groups, and leading assemblies.

Stranger Danger Telford and Wrekin

Charlton School has reported the following:

One of our students was walking towards a bus stop in Wrockwardine village this morning, when a golden colour Vauxhall Sapphira pulled in front of him, blocking the student’s path. The driver, possibly Asian, with an accent, opened passenger window slightly and told the boy to get in. The boy ran away and the car drove off.

The incident has been reported to the police.
