We are able to offer both one-to-one and group coaching, therapeutic sessions for suitable learners and some specific 1:1 or group interventions. These sessions focus on a variety of topics, all with the overall aim of improving wellbeing as well as increasing confidence and resilience.
In addition to small group and one-to-one work, the team delivers a wellbeing provision for the entire school through assemblies, Wellbeing Wednesday activities, whole school Wellbeing days, lunchtime drop-in sessions and the new Wellbeing Hub, where secondary learners can go at lunch for fun, socialising and relaxation - run by our learner Wellbeing Ambassadors.
Our school Wellbeing Ambassadors are comprised of staff, governors, parents and learners. Our Learner Wellbeing Ambassadors are involved in leading the way for Wellbeing with their ideas, organisation and running of events and charity work in school and out in the wider community.
We run a Peer Supporters programme led by Miss Bennett, whereby learners have been trained to support others. The Peer Supporters can be accessed at the lunchtime drop in and at the Wellbeing Hub.
We are proud to have delivered training sessions to staff on topics such as Attachment, Anxiety, Protective Behaviours and Mental Health both internally and through links with the Targeting Mental Health in Schools programme (TaMHS).
Within our Wellbeing Team we have also had further training on The Solihull Approach, Drawing and Talking and Mental Health First Aid.
We also offer parent workshops relating to adolescent mental health run by an external agency.
Our Primary learners practice the ‘Massage in Schools programme’ (MISP) led by Mrs Chambers, a trained MISP Instructor, and have the opportunity to join in Wellbeing clubs such as Relax kids at lunchtimes
