How do we support children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties?

We work very hard to support children who are experiencing difficulties with their social, emotional and mental health. We have a Pastoral Support Leader who liaises closely with parents, SENCo, class teacher, TAs, outside agencies and the child. Through discussions and working together we aim to understand the difficulties, offer support and interventions and sign post to other agencies.

When appropriate, a CAF referral will be completed with the parents. If this is accepted, regular Family Network Meetings (FNM) meetings will take place. These are led by a Family Support Worker (FSW) and all the agencies involved in supporting the child meet to discuss progress, further actions and next steps.
