Introducing the Emotional Support Team at Gordon Children’s Academy

The Gordon Children’s Academy welcomes the Emotional Support Team (EST) to your child’s school. The Emotional Wellbeing Practitioner (known nationally as Education Mental Health Practitioner) who is part of the EST, is hoping to get to know you and your child over the coming weeks and months, offering support when needed and finding out your ideas about how we can all work together to support the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children at Gordons Children’s Academy.

 

Please view a leaflet which tells you all about the Emotional Support Team:

How does my child access this support? How do I access this support?

Your child may be included in whole school initiatives, for example, assemblies and classroom-based activities that raise awareness about emotional wellbeing and mental health. In addition, children with a specific identified emotional wellbeing need (e.g. worry) may be referred for 1-to-1 support in the form of up to 12 weekly sessions.

Groups and workshops for parents (e.g., ‘Understanding your child’s behaviour’) will be advertised by school. If you would like to attend please contact Miss Debnam for links.Your preferences have prevented this content from being loaded. If you have recently changed your preferences, please try reloading the page

All 1-to-1 and group work remains confidential, unless concerns were raised about an individual’s safety, in which case the information would be shared with the relevant people.

If you would like to discuss any of the above information, please contact the Senior Mental Health Lead, Miss Debnam.

We hope that this information is helpful to you. We are very much looking forward to working together.

 

Yours sincerely
