Emotional Well-Being support
Children who are identified as needing additional support are usually identified by their class teacher or parents.
We have an in-school referral process which is completed by the class teacher after a conversation with the child themselves and their parent/carer.
The Mental Health Lead will receive the referral and in conversation with the class teacher, Sendco and parent/carer will decide the appropriate level of support needed to meet the needs of the child.
The in-school provision available is:
Group support/circle time - led by the emotional well-being support staff
Individual support sessions provided by the emotional well-being support staff
Weekly counselling sessions provided by Sorted Counselling Services - this is commissioned by the school.
Weekly play therapy sessions provided by Clive Black - commissioned by the school.
