As part of the ethos of our Primary School, we have a Well-Being Team to support the children and families of South Avenue. This team will focus on ensuring the child’s holistic needs are met. The team will work closely with parents and families to achieve this.
The Well-Being team meet regularly to review and plan interventions. As a school we support the children using the THRIVE approach and are proud to have 2 fully qualified THRIVE practitioners supporting the children. THRIVE is a programme of support to develop emotional resilience and prevent mental health problems in primary schools.
In addition, we liaise with external agencies where they may be better placed to support the children.
If you, as a parent, have any concerns please bring these to the attention of the Class Teacher who will pass this on to a member of the Well-Being team.
