How we support children with their emotional wellbeing.

The ethos of our school is very inclusive and the atmosphere is warm and nurturing.  We employ one full-time experienced Learning Mentor, one full-time and one part-time SEN Teaching Assistant, and one full-time Family Liaison Officer who support the behaviour and emotional wellbeing of children and their families.  The support is individualised to specific needs and is delivered in small groups or 1:1.


As a school, we recognise that some pupils need specific therapeutic interventions, and as a result, we also invest in the following:

  • Weekly input from two Educational Psychologists

  • Weekly input from a CAMHS therapist for Early Years.

  • Weekly activities such as yoga, RADiate Dance, therapy dog, dog walking and additional swimming slots.


We liaise closely with the Primary Pupil Referral Unit who offer support through Nurture groups, mentoring, family support and educational support.


Mindfulness sessions and Circle Time take place in class on a weekly basis.


Timetables are adapted to suit the needs of our children.  If appropriate, children have individual timetables for a set period of time until they are able to cope with a full timetable in class again.
