The lack of funding to schools and therefore the lack of professionals able to support the children adequately. Providing funding to schools so that early intervention can start from as young as nursery ages. Support the children while they're young so we can give them the tools they need to help themselves as they move on into adulthood. Children deserve quality care and support whether it's about mental health, learning difficulties, tough home lives, or just wanting to talk without feeling like there's no time for them because the curriculum awaits. If a child struggles with everyday life or other difficulties what is the curriculum going to do? I'm not saying don't learn, I'm just saying there's more than the curriculum to think about. I believe if we fund schools we're funding the future. The future adults. Think about what type of adults will come from the young children who can understand themselves and their emotions. The problem we face if children slip through the net and are not supported properly at school is that you end up with lots of children who turn into adults with mental health issues, poor education and more. These children can end up taking the wrong path in life and end up killing or being killed, into drugs and many other things. To support the properly from early stages we can help give them confidence to achieve, tools to cope, a shoulder to cry on. I am passionate about working with children and supporting their needs. I believe we should work with the families too. I work in a primary school and have done for many years, I see first hand what having better funding can do I also see what having low funding and being short staffed can do. It has a huge impact on the staff and most importantly the children.
