This programme is for young people who are struggling in school settings and regularly present to pastoral staff for emotional support, though typically they do not meet the threshold for other services such as CAMHS, and may not be suitable for counselling, or wish to access talk therapies or art therapy.
Pupils may present as anxious, stressed and avoidant of situations (withdraw or self-exclude), or exuberant and struggling to maintain focus (may receive detentions or isolations). Situations relating to school and/or homelife are affecting them. In any case, these young people are vulnerable to missing out on their education and failing to achieve to the best of their capabilities.
Our intervention is personalised and offers targeted support and education, delivered by our trained coaches, and qualified and experienced Youth Work staff via KS groupwork with a similar cohort (or 1:1 as appropriate).
Ofsted’s new inspection framework places a stronger emphasis on how schools are promoting mental health and educating pupils as part of the new compulsory PSHE curriculum.
Our activities are designed to support the improvement of mental, physical and social wellbeing for young people aged 11-16 years. We help pupils understand more about the mind-body connection, learn about the importance of social connection and self-regulation, and practice a variety of evidenced based approaches for staying emotionally regulated in challenging situations. Together they are provided with the skills and experiences needed to understand how to maintain good mental health.
