The wellbeing of our children is at the heart of all that we do and care for our pupils is embedded in school culture. With smaller than average class sizes, every child is cared for and well supported.
Our class teachers are usually the first port of call for worries and concerns, and in most cases, they are best placed to offer advice and support.
We also believe a happy, healthy school community needs to promote and support the wellbeing of everyone – its pupils, staff and parents.
This is why we are working with the Schools Counselling Partnership (SCP). The SCP offers a whole-school approach to emotional health and wellbeing. It specialises in providing therapeutic counselling services supporting children, young people, schools and families.
The SCP holds weekly drop-in sessions for pupils, staff and parents. One-to-one sessions are also provided for pupils who need extra support. Mental health is an increasingly complex area and having professional counsellors available is a valuable resource for the school.
