How does our school provide support to improve the emotional and social developments of our SEN pupils/students?
Our school Pastoral Team is at the heart of our school and all of our systems. They are heavily involved in the Progress Support Meetings which not only focus on the academic needs of the pupils but also the emotional, social and mental health needs. Provision is made for those pupils who require additional intervention to focus upon emotional and social needs for example the Social Skills groups, 'Feelings and Emotions' groups, interventions around management of feelings, sleep hygiene programmes, referral to 'Young Minds Matter - Trailblazers' and commissioning of 1:1 mentoring sessions.
Great consideration is also placed on meeting the needs of pupils at key points of transition particularly when moving onto Secondary School when we invite children and their parents / carers / family member to work with them on a transition project.
