As is clearly seen in the Maslow’s “Hierarchy of Needs” children need to feel well; safe and secure; a feeling of belonging and a sense of achievement before they can achieve personal growth and self actualisation.
We have a well developed and consistent behaviour policy that was carefully developed with input from staff, governors, parents and children. We are always keen to hear from parents about their viewpoint of how their child is progressing in their emotional development.
Mrs Webb is our personal, social and health co-ordinator and she plans for the many aspects of this education that children experience in school.
We work closely with other services to ensure that children receive the maximum amount of input about keeping healthy and making positive life choices.
The School Nurse works closely with school staff to follow up on any concerns we or parents have about the children and she works with small groups and whole classes on issues around keeping healthy.
Our Clinical Psychologist works very successfully in school with children and families for whom she has received a referral.
Working closely with parents and carers means that the school are able to pick up on any issues concerning a child’s wellbeing quickly and help to make things better.
