Services in School

In school we are fortunate to have many services that support and add to the work that takes place around mental health and wellbeing.  Access to all groups are by referral through school although some parenting programmes can also be through self referral. Should you need further information about any of the services please contact Lizzy Dean who will be happy to chat through any questions or discuss referrals. 


NHS Mental Health Support Team (MHST)

In school we are fortunate to have Education Mental Health Practitioners who run a variety of interventions to support the development of positive mental health.  These include 1:1's with chidlren and parents, parenting programmes, group work and consultations.  Children are referred to the MHST via a referral process and parental consent is always gained before a referral is placed. If you would like more information about the MHST please click on the link below.
