Student Wellbeing Team – Promoting and safeguarding the health, welfare and safety of students
We are very fortunate to have a student wellbeing provision at Meole Brace School that is staffed by non-teaching staff who are committed to the emotional well-being of our students. We offer a truly different way of delivering access to mental and emotional health support. We believe that students should not feel like they have to reach crisis point to get the help they need. We don't want students to feel like they don't deserve a place to go because their worry is 'too small.' We believe in supporting the student (and family where appropriate) in accessing the right service, in school or in the community. Although we are a small team we work collaboratively with other services to ensure the right support is delivered.
What do we do?
We can support the Students on a 1:1 basis or in group work sessions delivering information and advice on:
- Anger Management
- Friendship Groups
- No Worries (Anxiety Management)
- Bereavement and Loss
- Helping to change behaviour, improving attendance, punctuality and organisation
- Managing feelings and low self-esteem
- Chill Skills (Relaxation)
- Self-care: About the things we can do to look after our own mental health
How can we access the Team?
Students can self-refer by visiting the Wellbeing hub during the school day on their break or lunch times. Families can contact us directly by phone or email on (01743) 235961 or firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting the Year team leaders or Form Tutor in School.
