We are a FAST accredited school and have begun our 3rd round of 8 weeks with approximately 25 families each time.
We have two very proactive Child and Family Welfare Leads who are supported by our highly qualified SENCO. The team practically supports pupils and their families and they offer early intervention for language and behaviour. They also provide counselling, play therapy and parenting support throughout school. Emma Kitching and Andrea Hurt can be contacted on the school telephone number.
We are engaging in the Headtstart programme and we are beginning training for staff in occupational therapy (Future Steps Training) to help with emotional regulation and to support pupils with sensory processing and physical issues.
