Our story

Teenager on a staircase

Young people said that they want to feel safe and happy all the time.

Some young people felt worried at break times and meal times or when moving from lesson to lesson or from one room to another. Crowds, noise and being rushed made young people feel worried.

The young people told us that lessons were OK because there were adults around and students knew what to do.

We suggest:

  • Schools and colleges should make sure young people feel safe all the time.
