Our Early Help approach
Our Senior Mental Health Lead ensures that all our pupils who require pastoral care for issues such as bereavement, friendship issues, home issues and anxiety receive time each week with our pastoral staff who offer over 8 hours of individual and small group sessions each week. If you feel that your child could benefit from this offer, please contact Mrs Colley.
Nurture Group: Our nurture group, which is run by Miss Brown, is held after school and is open via invitation, to children who are experiencing more acute issues. We also have special transition sessions for pupils who are moving to high school and may be very worried about this big change in their lives.
The team has regular meeting to discuss and measure the progress of pupils who fall into specific categories, including attendance, wellbeing issues, SEN, behavioural issues and safeguarding.
