There can be times when some of our children might be experiencing the difficulties and need a little extra support.
Our specialist pastoral support worker, Mrs Maders, works with children daily both on a 1:1 basis and in small groups.
Mrs Maders role is to support children and their families. This support can range from general advice in supporting and signposting families to other agencies who can best support your needs. There are some useful links below.
Positive emotional health and mental wellbeing is a requirement for learning and this is where support can be provided to you and your child.
As a whole school we can offer emotional support for your child and deliver interventions to support and promote positive emotional health and mental wellbeing e.g.,
- 1:1 Pastoral support
- Rainbows/Sunbeams for children who have experienced significant changes from parental separation to bereavement.
- Mindfulness, Yoga and relaxation groups
- Emotional Literacy 1:1 sessions.
- Social skills - Zippy /Apple Friends - coping and social skills.
- Socially Speaking
- Friendship groups
- Self esteem groups and lots more.
Our aim is to help pupils overcome barriers to learning both inside and outside school and aim to develop a mentoring relationship with pupils needing support. We try to maintain regular contact with parents and carers of identified pupils, to promote positive family support and involvement.
We liaise with the school attendance improvement service, social services and other external agencies including The Early Help Team, MIND and Healthy Young Minds, Positive Steps and agencies to support looked after children in the school.
If you think your child may benefit from any of these services, please get in touch with Mrs Maders through the school office on 0161 624 1377
