Trauma Informed School / Pupil Behaviour and Welfare
We want all the children in our community to flourish, so we have introduced The Trauma Informed School Approach in order to support their emotional and social development.  Our aim is to help your children feel happy and secure, able to enjoy friendships, relate well to others and be ready and able to learn.
We have several TIS trained members of staff in school including Mrs Hooper, Mrs Mepham and Mrs O'Mahoney. 
We also participate in wider programmes with charities such as the NSPCC to support pupils with their relationships education. 
In addition to the above, we have two Senior Mental Health leads in school - Mrs Ford and Mrs O'Mahoney.
