The Primary SEMH Team is part of Local Authority Inclusion Service and consists of 3 teachers and 3 teaching assistants.
Outreach support is given to school staff to enable them to better meet the needs of children presenting with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties. This can range from CPD sessions and advice, to individual mentoring support for staff working with a referred child.
School staff can refer in either through the local SEMH Partnership Panels or the Inclusion Allocation Panel
We currently offer:
Support and advice to schools with carrying out and completing assessments to identify pupil needs, including parents and the pupil in the process where possible.
Professional development for school staff to help them to meet the needs of pupils. This can be on an individual basis or as group CPD sessions.
