Emotional Support for Children

Children may experience a wide range of social and emotional difficulties which manifest themselves in many ways. These may include becoming withdrawn or isolated, as well as displaying challenging behaviour or showing signs of anxiousness.

We have clear processes to support children with social and emotional needs. Mrs Hall has been fully trained in Youth Mental Health First Aid and staff work together to support children in class. Teaching assistants may deliver support on a one to one or group basis, for example following a program that develops social skills.

We have significantly invested in pupil well-being, emotional support and therapeutic approaches. We offer over 15 sessions of individual ELSA and Rainbow group sessions per week. We also have access to a number of agencies, whom we can approach when we require more specialist support for our children. ·
