How does the school support the social, emotional and mental health and development of pupils with SEND?
Children may experience a wide range of social and emotional difficulties which manifest themselves in many ways. These may include becoming withdrawn or isolated, as well as displaying challenging behaviour or showing signs of anxiousness.
We have clear processes to support children with social and emotional needs. This includes the effective management of behaviour (as in behaviour policy).
Staff undergo training where necessary in order to support children with particular needs. Teaching Assistants deliver pastoral support in the form of one to one provision as well as group provision that develops social skills.
We also have access to a number of agencies, whom we can approach when we require more specialist support for our children.
