The well-being of our pupils is something that our school strives hard to ensure and we continue to work hard to provide ways to help you tell us if you or your children have any problems or worries which the School needs to know about.
To further enhance the support we currently offer every pupil in school, we have employed a specialist teaching assistant to help provide any additional social or emotional wellbeing support for any pupils and/or families who feel that they may benefit from it. This support will be flexible and tailored to meet each child’s needs; it could consist of one session, weekly or daily visits. We will be offering 1:1 support along with group work and drop-in times for both our pupils and, if requested, their parents/ carers.
Talking and reporting issues is a very effective way to enable us to deal with concerns before they escalate. We understand that sometimes, coming into school to tell us about any issues cannot always be an easy thing to do. With this in mind we have developed a Werrington Wellbeing Room where we will be able to support our pupils and their families.
We also offer support through the use of some external agencies, such as Younger Minds, Reverend Steve Parker offers a chaplaincy service, School Nurse, GP referrals and CAMHS.
