At Bollin we also recognise that, at times, children need bespoke support that focuses on nurturing and supporting their individual needs at that time. We ensure that the support needed is recognised and provided, with teachers and support staff working together. We support a range of children who are having emotional difficulties that can impact on their learning; supporting their well-being and helping reduce barriers to learning.
Mrs Weightman is our Pastoral Lead and, working alongside staff, provides a range of interventions to support emotional well- being:
- The Orchard is a space where children can go to feel safe and secure, to calm down or have time out.
- Supporting the children and parents in the playground at the beginning of the school day.
- Liaising with teachers and check at the beginning of each day for children needing support.
- 1-1 sessions with identified vulnerable children.
- In class support
- Social groups (social and emotional needs, behaviour, friendships)
- Worry boxes in each class for children to raise any worries or concerns.
