How do you support children to develop socially and emotionally?

Our whole school PSHE (Personal Social and Health Education) programme is supplemented by support from our School Nurse and by a Time to Talk Counsellor. The Time to Talk Counsellor is in school once a week and is open to all Year 5 and 6 pupils (with parental permission). Younger children can also be offered this support, if required. We also have a Parent Support Advisor who can work with you as a parent or carer, if things at home are challenging. This support can be invaluable for your child too as it provides an additional link between home and school. Our Parent Support Advisor, Helen Oliver is usually in school on Friday and can be contacted via the school office.

We have a strong behaviour policy, with lots of individual and class rewards, as well as targeted support for children who have additional social and emotional needs. This can include social skills groups, games and support at playtimes.

Our Anti-bullying Policy has been written in `child-speak’ in conjunction with the School Council and is reviewed annually. Please see the section entitled ` How will my child be included in activities and events outside the classroom?’ for more details.
