How does the school plan to develop children social and emotional skills?

We recognise that for learning to take place, children need to feel secure, safe and happy in their learning environment. The school plans social and emotional support for all pupils through the PHSE element of the curriculum.

Class teachers make themselves available to meet with pupils and parents/carers to support any social and emotional needs. A member of the leadership team is always available on the door in the morning to discuss any concerns too. Children can self refer to a place to talk at any time.

In addition to this, where it is assessed as necessary, we deliver some intervention work within school (through interventions such as Social and Emotional Behaviour Support and RTime) and also work with specialists to conduct more specialist assessments and deliver programmes.
