Wellbeing for all members of our school is a key priority for us as a school.
As part of our approach to ensure children’s emotional wellbeing is being catered for we have a variety of small groups and support networks to help support children during different stages of their life or during difficult times that they may face.
We have a school counsellor, Jackie Robertson.
Jackie is in school working with some of our children 2 days a week.
If you would like more information, please contact Jackie at: email@example.com
Our Young Carer’s Group meet fortnightly with Jackie Robertson and Mrs Beckett. This group participates in a range of activities that are pupil led based on what the children enjoy and want to do.
It is essentially a time for them to get together and just have a bit of fun. Young carers are children and young persons under the age of 18 who provide care, assistance or support to another family member. There are different levels of caring and can be both emotional and physical. Examples of caring roles can be to support someone with depression, substance misuse or someone with a physical or mental disability. We are not here to judge, we are here to help. Even if your child does not qualify as a young carer, perhaps the young carers club could still help them?

Jackie Robertson, our Home School Care Link Worker, also leads this group. Our RAFters group meet fortnightly and is a group designed especially for our service children. They participate in a range of fun activities that is led by what the children enjoy doing.
