Welcome to the Family Wellbeing page where you will find various information that we hope will support your family.
In respect of us supporting your children, we will never work with your child without you knowing, we want us to work together to find the way forward together so we’ll always have a chat before we move on to the next steps.
If your child needs a little bit of extra support in school for instance for reassurance, a short time out to calm down or gather their thoughts, time to talk through any anxiety, we will find a way.
Alternatively, there might be a bigger issue, perhaps while we wait for a CAMHS referral or while we are finding out what is stopping your child from learning. Our first step will be to introduce you to our Family Wellbeing Lead:
MESSAGE FROM LINDA
As a qualified Thrive Practitioner, I like to help children find their confidence and love of learning through play activities, so a visit to me won’t be alarming in any way, for now, just be rest assured that I’ll always explain next steps with you. For me, the most effective way I can begin to work with your child/ren is to find out as much as I can about them, together we need to find the piece of the puzzle that will help us understand why they need a little bit of extra support, so I'll start the support by inviting you in for a chat (and a cuppa)
I support your children, either on a 1:1 basis or in a small group, depending on what we want to help them achieve.
By request of the year 3 children I also facilitate the "Chatterbox Club", this take place during the lunch period and the children can choose to join me for half an hour to play, make, share a book, what ever they choose to do, but most importantly it's space for them to chat. (about friendships, life, and themselves)
SUPPORT FOR YOUR FAMILY
It would be amazing if we could all go through life without a care in the world but there will always be “something” that might be keeping you awake at night. If there is, come and have a chat with me, I doubt you’ll bring a problem with you that I haven’t either experienced myself or helped someone else to deal with. I promise to work non-judgementally, because realistically we all live life in different ways. I believe the most important factors to establishing a workable relationship with any family is Trust & Respect, both qualities have to be earned, and will take time, I’m prepared for that. We cannot expect a family to meet a professional for the first time and feel comfortable to offload their innermost emotions, so don’t be worried about what I might ask you, you’ll be leading the way. You can contact me on email@example.com, phone the school and leave me a message or leave a message with any member of the staff team and I’ll call you back.
