We want to make you aware of the additional well-being support we offer to our children here at More Park School. We recognise the significance of emotional well-being on overall development and readiness to learn, and this is linked with our school ethos and the spiritual development of our children.
For any worry your child may have that they wish to share. Positioned on the board outside the year 5 classroom, children write their name and year on a slip of paper and Miss Cole, or another chosen adult, will speak to the child at a convenient time.
If your child experiences the loss of somebody close to then, they are invited to decorate a pebble in their memory to place in our dedicated space behind the castle on the playground. This is a place for peace, prayer and reflection.
We also offer extended bereavement support upon request.
From weekly play therapy, to drawing and talking and unstructured drop in sessions. We can also tailor sessions to meet the needs of your child. We offer support for a wide range of social, emotional or behavioural concerns.
Additionally we make referrals and co-ordinate support from other services including Kent Young carers, school nurse service and the Kent Early Help team.
The majority of our in school support is provided by our pupil welfare officer and play therapist, Miss Cole. Miss Cole works closely with Mrs Symington, our Inclusion manager, and Mr Fox and Mrs Seal as part of our safeguarding team.
