Social and emotional support
We are pleased to announce developments within our support staff team, to include dedicated provision for students who are struggling to access learning due to social and emotional needs. Our nurture room opened in January 2020, and offers students the opportunity to talk, and participate in group or 1:1 therapeutic sessions, aimed at increasing young people’s ability to express their feelings and develop their own strategies for resilience.
Diagnostic assessments using Boxall Profiling have helped up to better understanding young people, and we have already seen the impact on behaviour and pupils ability to share their emotions and identify solutions. This builds on our Academy goal to ‘develop the whole learner’, and the student’s own priorities to improve mental health provision in the local area.
Please contact us for more information.
If you have a concern about the safety of a student, or want to discuss safeguarding at the Academy, please contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead.
