Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties

Targeted Group Support

Support for targeted groups of pupils may include

  • Additional behaviour strategies may be implemented as the teacher’s knowledge of your child’s need develops
  • More detailed assessment and identification of a child’s learning needs
  • Small time-limited group work following one of a range of behaviour/social skills/self-esteem/anger management interventions available in school delivered by a member of the teaching staff
  • Involvement of the SENCO to help determine the most appropriate intervention programme and/or if your child has not made the progress expected and a SEND is looking increasingly likely
  • Additional TA or LM support in class for some lessons or interventions
  • Support from Social Care teams
  • A 2 term part-time placement in ‘The Nest’ (our in-school Nurture group for children in FS2 and Key Stage 1) – see FAQ15
  • Weekly Thrive sessions with one of our Thrive Licensed Practitioners
