Wellbeing Support


The emotional welfare of our children and families is of the utmost importance to us as a school. We are exceptionally lucky to have a trained ELSA: Mrs Hazel Cox. Mrs Cox works with lots of our children and families in order to provide them with a bespoke support service. If you are interested in finding out more or think that you and/ or your child could benefit from this service, do pop in for a chat with your child's class teacher in the first instance. If you want to research this topic more yourself please click this link.


Mr Richmond has undertaken Thirve's 'A Strategic Approach to Whole School Emotional Health and Wellbeing' course. He is the mental health lead for the school and has implemented numerous strategies in order to best support the pupils and the staff in the school.
