Each class teacher teaches PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) in class each week so that children have time to consider, reflect and discuss a range of issues and topics so that they develop knowledge and skills to live happy and healthy lives. We have a worry box system for children to express their concerns. We have informal 'Nurture' drop in sessions at lunchtimes for children who feel worried or anxious to share their concerns with our Learning Mentor Annie Goddard so that she can listen and suggest ways forward. She also supports children outside on the playground, alongside the Lunchtime Supervisors, leading group and team games to encourage friendships and social skills. For children with specific social, mental or emotional health difficulties, we work with the EPS (Educational Psychologist Service), LAWSS (Learning and Wellbeing Support Service) / SEMHLS (Social, emotional, mental health and Learning service), CAMHS (Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service). We also offer a counselling service, (Relate-Time for You) for those children who need emotional support through difficult situations. We also run a Nurture Group in the afternoons.
