Introducing the Emotional Wellbeing Team at Cliftonville Primary School
Cliftonville Primary School is very excited about our brand new partnership with NELFT and Kent with the Emotional Wellbeing Team (EWT). The Emotional Wellbeing Practitioners, who are part of the EWT, are hoping to get to know you and your child over the coming weeks and months, offering support when needed and finding out your ideas about how we can all work together to support the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children at Cliftonville Primary School.
For more information about what we offer please see our leaflets available at school about the Emotional Wellbeing Team. You can also find out more by watching this short animation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=duXLsp5wFRE.
What we will offer at Cliftonville Primary School?
Your child may be included in whole school initiatives, for example, assemblies and classroom-based activities that raise awareness about emotional wellbeing and mental health. The EWT will be offering a selection of workshops focusing on different aspects of wellbeing for both children and parents (e.g., understanding your child’s behaviour, helping your child with worries). Later in the year, the team will be offering support to children and/or their parents/carers who may be experiencing difficulties such as low mood or worries. This could be 1 to 1, or in a group.
If you would like to discuss any of the above information, please contact the Senior Mental Health Lead Mrs Frith (Assistant Head) or SENCO Paula Standen.
We hope that this information is helpful to you. We are very much looking forward to working together.
