We have a caring, understanding ethos and are an inclusive school; we welcome and celebrate diversity, and believe that high self-esteem is crucial to children’s well-being.
As a nurturing school, we school places a high priority on ensuring those children who are vulnerable are supported in the best way we can.
The class teacher has overall responsibility for the pastoral, medical and social care of every child in their class. If you have concerns regarding your child’s well-being, your child’s class teacher should be your first point of contact. The class teacher may liaise with the SENCO for further advice and support.
Strategies used to support children who are causing concern socially, emotionally or regarding their behaviour include:
Class Circle Time – a classroom technique during which the class discuss a problem and the pupils are given the chance to offer solutions.
Positive Play – this is 1 to 1 support with a trained adult, working in a relaxed environment. These sessions will focus on a particular target. They usually occur once a week, although if the need is greater, these sessions may occur more regularly.
Behaviour Support – an external agency providing support for schools, offering advice, support and strategies to help children.
Often we feel that the family and child may need support and when this is the case a Common Assessment Framework (CAF) is set up. This is a series of Multi Agency meetings which are organised to support both the child and their family.
