Not got the grades? Help is at hand!

Our school nurses and children’s mental health staff in Scunthorpe, Doncaster and Rotherham  are reminding young people who don’t get the exam grades they had hoped for this summer that help is always at hand.

Our school nurses and Children and Young People’s Mental Health Services (CAMHS) staff are urging young people not to compare themselves to their friends. They also say that if their GCSE or A Level grades aren’t what they had hoped for and they feel upset by the results or are wondering what their next steps are, they can always talk to their school nurse or CAMHS staff.

Barbara Murray, who manages our CAMHS services  across all of the areas, said: “Receiving exam results can be a stressful time. If a young person receives grades lower than they were expecting there is always help at hand.  Whether it’s taking exam resits or looking at different opportunities, there are always alternatives.

“If you are a young person, or know a young person, who has got lower grades and is feeling upset about them, please encourage them to get in touch with us. We can offer them help and support,” added Barbara.
